I've graduated from USC in July, 2012.
I started my Ph.D(acronym of Permanent Head Damage, :) from Northeastern University for two and half years before moving to University of Southern California on January, 2009. I work with Prof. Cyrus Shahabi in the Info-Lab, Computer Science Department, Viterbi School of Engineering, USC. Research-wise, I am interested in query processing and optimization in relational and spatial databases, data management and discovery in data warehouses, data security, privacy and integrity in outsourced data environment, location based services for mobile cilents and sensor networks.
I received my bachelor degree from Beijing Information Science & Technology University (used to be Beijing Information Technology Institute) and master degree from Beijing University of Posts&Telecommunications. I joined
Teradata Division, NCR and worked as a solution consultant (professional Service) for two and half years before I studied in the
Northeastern Universityin the College of Computer and Information Science. I got my Master degree from Northeastern Univ. in May 2009.
Here is my CV.
I am currently working with Prof. Shahabi in Info-Lab.
