    Visting Peking & Tsinghua

    I will spend my summer visiting Peking University (Institute of Network) and Tsinghua University (School of Software). It is exciting to work with professors and students back in my hometown (one of which is also my alma mater)!

    ETH Zurich

    I am joining ETH Zurich as a tenure-track assistant professor in computer science.

  • 2010-2016
    Stanford University & UW-Madison

    I spent six years working with Christopher Ré at Stanford University and the University of Wisconsin-Madison. For a summary of our work, see my research statement and PhD dissertation.

    With indispensable help from many collaborators, my PhD thesis produced DeepDive, a trained system for automatic knowledge base construction. DeepDive has been used to achieve human-level quality in a range of applications, such as paleontology, anti-human trafficking, and genomics etc. DeepDive is being commercialized as Lattice.

    I would like to thank my advisor, Chris. I owe Chris my career as a researcher. Since the day I first met Chris and told him about my dream, he has done everything he could, as a scientist, an educator, and a friend to help me.

    Peking University

    I spent three years working with Bin Cui at Peking University as an undergraduate student. My research focused on managing user-generated content on social media. For a summary our work, see my B.Sc. dissertation (in Chinese) or the SIGIR 2010 and SIGMOD 2010 paper.

    I would like to thank my advisor, Bin. The training I received from his group helped me realize that doing research is exciting and fun and that data management is awesome.
