I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at Yale University, working with Prof. Rex Ying. I received PhD degree in Computer Science at Singapore Management University (SMU), working with Prof. Hady W. Lauw. My research interests generally lie in Machine Learning and Data Mining. In particular, I have been focusing on Graph Representation Learning, Graph Neural Networks, Large and Pre-trained Language Models, Text Mining, and Recommender Systems. My first-authored papers are published on top venues, including NeurIPS, ICML, KDD, AAAI, CIKM, TKDE, etc.
I am awarded Singapore Data Science Consortium PhD Dissertation Research Fellowship 2021 in recognition of outstanding PhD students across all Singapore universities (only 6 annual quotas in 2021). I served as an Instructor and independently taught an undergraduate compulsory course, IS1702 Computational Thinking, for AY2022/23 Term 2 at Singapore Management University. Course materials include data structures, complexity analysis, and algorithm design.
