About Me

I am currently a lecturer @ School of Computer Science and Engineering , The University of New South Wales (UNSW), Australia. I am ARC Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA) Fellow between 2016-2018 (awarded in 2015).

My research interest lies in Data Mining and Machine Learning applications with the focuses on Internet of Things Analytics, recommender systems, human activity recognition and Brain Computer Interface. Visit my Youtube Channel for taking a closer look at my research.

Before I joined UNSW in 2016, I was a lecturer and an ARC reseach associate at The University of Adelaide (UoA). I received my PhD degree and Master degree both from UoA in 2014 and 2010, respectively, and my Bachelor degree from Shandong University (SDU).
