I am a Ph.D candidate in the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. My advisor is Qiaozhu Mei. I received my Bachelor's degree from the College of Computer Science and Technology at Zhejiang University, China. I am particularly interested in data mining, information retrieval, machine learning (especially deep learning), and natural language processing, with application to the retrieval, management, and analysis of data from Web, scientific literature, social networks, and various online communities.
