HI, Now I work in Cosmos Scope team building a distributed machine learning library on cosmos since 2012. Before this, I worked in Microsoft Research Asia machine learning group as a Researcher since 2005. My research interests include large scale machine learning and information retrieval.  I enjoy using large-scale ML to solve industrial challenges, mostly in Web search and online advertising. I finished my PhD in HKUST with a thesis on click model to understand user behavior in Bing using ML. Prior to joining Microsoft, I worked in IBM research lab for about one year.  

Recent publications:

I have been fortunate to work closely with many talent interns. Most of them were undergraduate students in China.  They worked with me very closely and then went to universities for their PhD. The list for recent 2 years includes:
