I am interested in building mathematical models to solve real world problems. Since undergraduate studies, I have gained mathematical modeling experiences during participation in the Mathematical Contest in Modeling (MCM) and the summer camp in Chinese Academy of Sciences. During MSc study, many of my research and project experiences have been in an area closely aligned with machine learning of high-dimensional data. My Master's thesis is on learning Bayesian network structure from data. Currently, I am interested in understanding hot topics propagation, popularity prediction and ranking in social media network such as Sina Weibo, the “Twitter of China”.
