About Me

Don't let the past steal your present.

I received the BE degree from Heilongjiang University, Harbin, China, in 2012, and received the MS degree and PhD degree from Xi'an Jiaotong University, Xi'an, China, in 2015 and 2019.
I am an Assistant Professor at the School of Software Engineering, Xi'an Jiaotong University, Xi'an, China.
Now I am also a visiting scholar in the Institute for Medical Engineering & Science (IMES) at MIT under the supervision of Prof. Roger Mark from Jun. 2019.
I was a visiting scholar at SmileLab-Synergistic Media Learning Lab at Northeastern University under the supervision of Prof. Yun (Raymond) Fu, from Oct. 2017 to Oct. 2018.
I was an intern of Social Computing Group at MSRA under the supervision of Dr. Ruihua Song, from Jan 2017 to July 2017.
My research interests include time series data analysis, recommender systems, and text generation.
I have published several research papers on journals such as IEEE TKDE, TMM, TBD, TSC, and conferences such as IEEE BigMM, MMM.
In addition, I service as a TPC member or a reviewer of ACM TIST, IEEE TSC, AAAI, IEEE Access, IEEE ICME, IEEE Multimedia, etc.

Research Interests

Follow your heart and do what you want to do.

Social User Understanding

Learning user preference, habits, sentiment, and social influence from social media big data for product recommendation.

POI Cluster and Recommendation

Learning attributes of POIs from user check-ins, comments, sentiment, and temporal information for POI Cluster and Recommendation.

Service Quality Evaluation

Learning user confidence with information entropy theory to filter out the untrustworthy users for Service Quality Evaluation.

Text Generation

Using CNN and RNN to generate poems for images, and generate recommendation reasons for music.
