I am currently a PhD student under the supervision of Dr. Jing Gao in Department of Computer Science and Engineering, The State University of New York at Buffalo. My research interests broadly are data mining and machine learning, including truth discovery, multi-source information trustworthiness analysis, privacy-preserving data mining, and educational data mining.

Before joining UB in 2013, I got my Bachelor of Science degree in Statistics from Beijing Normal University in 2011; after graduation, I worked as a research assistant in City University of Hong Kong, supervised by Professor Ding-Xuan Zhou on learning theory.
