I am a PhD candidate at Institute for Interdisciplinary Information Sciences (IIIS), Tsinghua University and a member of Netman Group at Department of Computer Science and Technology, Tsinghua University. I have successfully published research work on using big data science & machine learning for characterizing campus life including WiFi experience, social-physical interactions and education.

I am the founder of two science and technology related student organizations at Tsinghua: Lab μ Geek Association and Club ε Neuroscience Interest Group. In Lab μ, I led the > 50-people team on the design, development and promotion of 3 popular products — TUNet automatic network manager, Tsinghua Now campus life assistant and CaμsKit large event services — at Tsinghua University.

Currently I am actively looking for jobs and positions for my career after PhD graducation in July 2017. Pushing forward the boundary of human knowledge and technology, and applying them to build exciting new products always make me exciting. Please feel free to contact me and download my résumé.
