I am a professor in Department of Computer Science at Aalborg University. I am a Distinguished Scholar at The Technical Faculty of IT and Design, and I am also a faculty member in Center for Data-Intensive Systems. I am an IEEE senior member.
I obtained my Ph.D. degree from Fudan
University in 2010. During August 2010 to August 2011, I was at Max-Planck-Institut für Informatik, working in the Databases and Information Systems department headed by Gerhard Weikum. From September 2011 to July 2014, I was at Aarhus University, working in the Data-Intensive Systems group headed by Christian S. Jensen. I joined Aalborg University in August 2014.
Opening Positions: Postdoc and
positions are available. Please send me your CV if you are interested.
Data management and machine leanring, in particular, on spatio-temporal data, time series, graphs, and uncertain data.
The slides for my MDM 2019 Early Career Distinguished Lecture on Learning to Route are avaiable here.
An overview of my recent research on enabling eco-routing using big transportation data is available here.
A vision on extracting 3T (thorough, timely, and trustworthy) traffic knowledge from big transportation data to achieve total traffic awareness is available here.
