I am a second-year Ph.D. student in Computer Science at the University of Florida, supervised by Dr. Zhe Jiang. Before this, I received my B.Eng. degree in Software Engineering from Shandong University in 2018, under the supervision of Dr. Meng Chen.

My research focuses on data mining and machine learning, with a specialized interest in spatiotemporal data in Earth Sciences. Additionally, I’m interested in AI for healthcare and drug discovery. I am always open to collaborative opportunities, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me.
