I am an associate professor in Department of Computer Science at Aalborg University. 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.

News: Postdoc and PhD positions are available. Please send me your CV if you are interested. See here for details.

Research Interests

Data management and data analytics, in particular, on spatio-temporal data, uncertain data, social media data, and textual data.

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.
