I got my Ph.D. degree in March 2013 under the supervision of Prof. Wei Wang, from the School of Computer Science and Engineering, the University of New South Wales, Australia.

Research

My general area of interest is Information Retrieval, Database System. More specifically, I am intrigued by the problems that are related to similarity search. e.g., set similarity join/search, edit similarity search/join, entity extraction and plagiarism detection.Here are some of my research projects:

Efficient Exact Similarity Join. Given a similarity function and two sets of objects, a similarity join returns all pairs of objects (from each set respectively) such that their similarity value satisfy a given criterion.
