Short Bio

  I am a Professor in the Data and Knowledge Rearch Group, School of Computer Science and Engineering, UNSW. My research interests lie in large scale data processing especially in query processing over spatial and graph/network data.
 
  PhD scholarships avaialble with living allowance plus tuition fee waiver. Applicants supported by the China Scholarship Council will receive further top-up on living allowance. Please send me an email with your CV if you are interested in doing PhD with me. Current UNSW Master by Course and undergraduate students are welcome to apply for Master by Research or PhD degree. Feel free to send me an email or drop by my office to discuss. Some topics include:
  • Graph Data Processing: cohesive subgraph computation, social network analysis, attributed graph, spatial-social network, bipartite graphs, heterogeneous information network
  • Spatial Data Processing: spatial keyword search, spatial-social data processing
     
Research Interest

  My research interests include spatial-temporal data management, graph data analysis, stream processing and uncertain data management.
