I am currently an Associate Professor in the Elmore Family School of Electrical and Computer Engineering of Purdue University. Before joining Purdue in January 2021, I was an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University at Buffalo, State University of New York. I got my PhD from Computer Science Department at University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign in 2011 under the supervision of Prof. Jiawei Han. I received M.E. and B.E. from the Computer Science and Technology Department at Harbin Institute of Technology in China.
