# Biography

I am an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, University of Connecticut (UConn). Before that, I was a research staff member at NEC Labs America in Princeton, NJ, since July 2016. In June 2016, I received my Ph.D. degree in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering from University of California San Diego (UCSD) with the guidance of Prof. David A. Meyer. My thesis committee includes Prof. Lawrence Saul, Prof. Nuno Vasconcelos, Prof. Gert Lanckriet, and Prof. Julian McAuley. I also work closely with Prof. Dacheng Tao from the University of Sydney.

I have broad research interests in machine learning, data mining, deep learning, federated learning, and related applications for time series representation, similarity search, prediction/forecasting, and anomaly detection (with data from IoT devices, healthcare, smart city, environmental science, etc.). I am also interested in graph representation learning with applications to link prediction, node classification, recommendation, dynamic systems, etc.
