I am an Assistant Professor in Computer Science Department and Data Science Program at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI). I obtained two Ph.D. degrees, in Computer Science from University of Minnesota, Twin Cities in 2013, and Electrical Engineering from Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications in 2009, respectively. I am interested in analyzing, understanding, and making sense of urban big data, smart cities, and data-driven cyber-physical systems (CPS). I am a senior member of IEEE and a member of ACM and AAAI.

Call For Papers Special issue on Urban Computing and Smart Cities with ACM Transactions on Data Science due on June 15, 2019 June 29, 2019. (details).
