I am a Research Scientist and Tech Lead at Yahoo Labs, working on data mining and machine learning problems, with the applications particularly in the domain of personalization and recommendation. Prior to joining Yahoo Labs, I was a research assistant in Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Lehigh University, where I was a member of WUME lab from 2008 to 2013, under the supervision of Associate Professor Brian D. Davison. I obtained Ph.D. (2013), M.S. (2010) from Lehigh University and B.S. (2007) from Beijing University of Chemical Technology, all in Computer Science.
My research interests include:
* machine learning and data mining
* personalization and recommender systems
* information retrieval and text mining
With the tools in the above areas, I focus on the applications in topic/interests modeling, recommendation/personalized information systems , collaborative filtering, user modeling/profiling and real-time event/trend detection.
I have published papers in major international conferences in data mining, machine learning and information retrieval, such as SIGIR, WWW, KDD, CIKM, RecSys, AAAI, WSDM and ICML with more than 1,000 citations. I have been served as program committee members in SIGIR, WSDM, AAAI, EMNLP, ICWSM and several workshops. I have helped to review articles in journals such as Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery, ACM Transactions on Knowledge Discovery from Data, ACM Transactions on Intelligent Systems and Technology, ACM Transactions on Information Systems, Neurocomputing, IEEE Intelligent Systems, IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering, IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics, Journal of Computer Science and Technology, Journal of Systems Science and Systems Engineering and Information Systems. I have co-founded User Engagement Optimization Workshop, which has been held in conjunction with CIKM 2013 and KDD 2014.
