I was born and brought up in Beijing, China. I got my B.S
degree in computer science from Peking University in 1999. In
order to further my study, I came to Department of Electrical
and Computer Engineering at Northwestern University in 1999.
After two years working in Database System Group, I got my M.S degree
in computer science. Then, I joined Ultra-Scale Computing
Laboratory to continue my Ph.D study under the supervision of
Prof. Alok Choudhary.
My general interests include data mining, parallel computing,
performance evaluation, and databases with a focus on high
performance data mining techniques in scientific simulations
and architectural evaluations of data mining applications.
