Research

My research interests are in the area of data management (i.e., similarity search on high dimensional data, data exploration techniques on multi-dimensional dataset). In particular, I focus on improving query time efficiency and query result accuracy. I do research because I really enjoy it. Especially, I want to do top research works which will make a difference to our life.


Teaching

I am the coach of the SUSTech programming team since Fall 2017. Contact me if you are interested in solving challenging algorithmic problems. You can visit many wonderful cities for free :)
