    Bio
    I am a Full Professor and the Associate Chair of the Department of Computer Science and Technology of Tsinghua University. I obtained my Ph.D. in DCST of Tsinghua University in 2006. My research interests include artificial intelligence, data mining, social networks , machine learning and knowledge graph, with an emphasis on designing new algorithms for mining social and knowledge networks.

    I have been visiting scholar at Cornell University (working with Prof. John Hopcroft and Jon Kleinberg), University of Southampton (working with Dame Wendy Hall), KU Leuven (working with Marie-Francine Moens), University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (short term, working with Jiawei Han), Chinese University of Hong Kong (working with Jeffrey Yu), and Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (working with Qiong Luo). During my graduate career, I have been an intern at NLC group of Microsoft Research Asia from 2004 to 2005. I also have attended the internship program of IBM China Research Lab in 2004.

    I have published more than 200 journal/conference papers and hold 20 patents. I served as PC Co-Chair of CIKM’16, WSDM’15, Associate General Chair of KDD’18, and Acting Editor-in-Chief of ACM TKDD, Editors of IEEE TKDE, IEEE TBD, and ACM TIST. I am leading the project AMiner.org for academic social network analysis and mining, which has attracted more than 10 million independent IP accesses from 220 countries/regions in the world. I was honored with the UK Royal Society-Newton Advanced Fellowship Award, CCF Young Scientist Award, NSFC for Distinguished Young Scholar, and KDD’18 Service Award.

    I am looking for highly-motivated students to work with me on the exciting area of social network, data mining, and machine learning. I also have a few open Postdoctoral Positions to investigate underlying theory and algorithms in data mining, social networks, machine learning, and knowledge graph.
