Bio

I was a PhD student at School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS), and Center for Computation Technology (CCT) in Louisiana State University (LSU), where my advisor was Dr. Xin Li. Before admission to LSU, I graduated from Harbin Institute of Technology in July 2009 with a B.Eng. degree in Computer Science when my research activity was advised by Dr. Muyun Yang. Upon graduation from LSU, I joined University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas as a staff member computational scientist in BioHPC (High Performance Computing) group. Then I worked in Audience Management team for Audience Operating System of Acxiom Corporation as a software engineer, where I was selected to be a member in a corporate "Tiger Team". After that, I become a senior software engineer in Search Systems and Big Data team in WalmartLabs. I would like to express my sincere acknowledgement to my current and previous employers and colleagues for offering me valuable opportunities, which helps me grow and enriches my experiences.
