I am now working as a research scientist in Yahoo! Lab. Before joining Yahoo! Lab, I was a Ph.D student in the Data and Information Systems (DAIS) Lab at UIUC. My advisor is Professor Kevin Chen-Chuan Chang. I received my Bacholer's degree in Computer Science from Shanghai Jiaotong University, China in 2008.
My Research focuses on Web-scale information integration and data retrieval.
System Demo:
DoCQS: aims at developing a Data-oriented Content Query System to support directly search into large scale web-documents.
EntityRank: a large-scale typed entity search system on ClueWeb'09 data.
