General Information

I am currently a 6th year PhD student in University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Department of Computer Science. My advisor is Professor Aditya Parameswaran.

My PhD research works mostly focus on using machine learning techniques to solve standard database problems. Currently, I’m interested in the potential deep integrations between machine learning techniques and database systems, and my recent research works are exploring the possibility of designing a database system with integrated machine learning functionalities but hides away the details.

I'm joining Tsinghua University, Institute for Interdisciplinary Information Sciences as an assitant professor starting September 2019.
