I am an Assistant Professor with School of Data Science, Lingnan University. I hold a B.E. degree from Jilin University (2014) and a Ph.D. degree from The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (2019), with additional research experience gained during a visiting scholarship at MIT Media Lab in 2017.

My research centers on AIoT-empowered Human Dynamics, a field that strives to decode human behavior and deliver practical insights by weaving together cross-disciplinary knowledge with AI and IoT. Within this domain, my research interests include Context-aware Computing, Mobile Computing, Data Mining, and Generative AI.

I have contributed over NA publications to esteemed journals including ACM TOIS, ACM IMWUT, IEEE TMC, IEEE TKDE, and IEEE TPDS as well as prestigious conferences such as WWW, IEEE INFOCOM, and IEEE ICDM. I am honored to have received two best paper awards, one of which was presented at IEEE INFOCOM 2020, a leading conference in networking and communications.
