I joined IBM Research Australia as a Postdoc Research Scientist in May of 2015.
I received my dual PhD degree (Machine Learning and Data Mining) at the University of Technology Sydney in Australia and Huazhong University of Science and Technology in China in 2015.
My PhD research focused on making sense of big data with effective and agile data analytics. I’ve built a data mining framework leveraging advanced hashing algorithms to efficiently process massive data without changing the nature of the data much. This research has provided state-of-the-art technologies in big data processing and has a strong impact on data utilisation for social and economic benefits.
My current work focuses on cognitive data analytics, in particular on big data analysis in social media, Watson Education and Watson Health.
