About Me

I am a researcher at WXG (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 networks (e.g., information diffusion models and applications) and graph algorithms.

My CV is here/这里. I am always open to exciting opportunies.
