I am a first-year Ph.D. student at the University of Virginia, now working with Prof. Jundong Li. Prior to joining in UVa, I obtained my bachelor degree from the School of Information and Communication Engineering at Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications (BUPT), where I worked with Prof. Yingxia Shao and Prof. Wensheng Sun.

Research Interests

I have abundant interest in Feature Fusion and Graph Mining, e.g., Graph Convolutional Network and other exciting topics. My previous research experiences mainly lie on feature fusion for forcasting.
