Biography

I joined the Department of Computer Science, University of Pittsburgh in fall, 2002 as a PhD student. I am currently in Advanced Data Management Technologies (ADMT) Lab, advised by Professor Alexandros Labrinidis.

My thesis research focuses on Web-databases and Real-time databases (admission control, CPU scheduling, concurrency control to balance Quality of Service and Quality of Data). My broader interests also expend on link analysis in graphs, data integration in mobile databases and operator scheduling in data stream managements.

Before I came to Pittsburgh, I got my Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science from Northeastern University in 2000 at Shenyang, China. After that, I worked in Department of Data Management of Neusoft Group Ltd. for two years.
