I am a researcher at Weixin Group of Tencent. I received my Ph.D. degree in Computer Science and Engineering from The Chinese University of Hong Kong, under the supervision of Prof. John C.S. Lui. I was a member of Advanced Networking and System Research Laboratory (ANSRLab) in CUHK. Before that, I received my B.E. degree in computer science from School of Computer Science and Technology at University of Science and Technology of China.
My research interests include social network analysis, user behavior analysis, and their applications. Recently, I have been learning causal inference.
During my spare time, I am an amateur iOS developer and maintain Pass for iOS.
