I am a researcher in the Data Management, Exploration and Mining Group at Microsoft Research. My research interests lie in large-scale data management, touching upon diverse areas: Web search, information retrieval, data mining, databases and natural language processing. I enjoy building novel information systems, as well as identifying and solving real world research problems that emerge in the process.

I received my Ph.D. degree in 2010 from the Department of Computer Science at University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. My Ph.D. thesis focuses on the interesting problem of Entity Search. My B.S. degree is from the Mixed Class, Chu Konchen Honors College, Zhejiang University.
