Postdoctoral Research Associate

University of Technology Sydney (UTS)


I am currently a postdoctoral research associate at Australian Artificial Intellegence Institution (AAII), University of Technology Sydney, supervised by A/Prof.Lu Qin. I am also an adjunct associate lecturer at The University of New South Wales. Before joining UTS, I was a postdoctoral research fellow at Data and Knowledge Research Group at The University of New South Wales, supervised by Prof. Wenjie Zhang. I obtained my Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from University of Technology Sydney in November 2021, advised by Prof.Ying Zhang and A/Prof.Lu Qin. I received my bachelor degree in Mathematics and Applied Mathematics from Zhejiang University in July 2016.

My research focuses on developing machine learning algorithms for graph structured data and database systems, including developing graph neural network architectures and applying machine learning techniques to improve the algorithms in database domain.
