About me

I am a Data Scientist in Link Analytic Centre (LAC), NTUC Link. From November 2015 to October 2017, I was a research scientist in Data Analytics Department, Institute for Infocomm Research (I2R), A*STAR, Singapore. I received Ph.D. from the School of Computer Science and Engineering at Nanyang Technological University in June 2016, supervised by Professor Chunyan Miao, and received B.S. from the Department of Electronic Science and Technology at University of Science and Technology of China in June 2008.

Research Interests

My current research interests include:

  • Data Mining: recommender systems, computational advertising, social media mining, network embedding

  • Machine Learning: matrix computation, learning to rank, online learning, deep learning, Bayesian learning

  • Bioinformatics: drug-target interaction prediction, synthetic lethality prediction
