I got my PhD from Prof. Jiawei Han's data mining group at University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign in 2012. Before that I got B.S. from Fudan University in China in 2007. I am currently a researcher at the Interaction and Intent group at Microsoft Research, Silicon Valley, where I mainly work on Data Integration, Data Quality and Knowledge Bases, but I have broad interests in problems related to data mining, machine learning and databases.
