Short Biography

Currently, I am a PhD. candidate in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Texas A&M University. I work in Infolab advised by Dr. James Caverlee. I received my M.S. degree in Transportation Engineering from Texas A&M University advised by Dr. Yunlong Zhang and the B.S. degree in Electronic Engineering from Beijing Jiaotong University, China.

Research Interest

My primary research interests are large-scale data analysis in Online Social Network(OSN), data mining, computer vision, image processing, intelligent transportation system(ITS). Much of my current work is measurement-driven and modeling-based in terms of spam detection and spatial-temporal analysis.
