Biography

I am now a Ph.D. candidate working with Prof. Hanan Samet in the Department of Computer Science at University of Maryland.
Before coming to UMD, I finished my master degree at Department of Computer Science & Engineering at Shanghai Jiao Tong University under the advisory of Dr. Yanmin Zhu.
I obtained my Bachelor's degree from the School of Software majoring in Software Engineering at Huazhong University of Science and Technology in 2011.

Research Interests

My research interests are in the areas of computing with spatial data mining, spatial trajectories, spatial data structure.
