Since July 2018, I have been an Assistant Professor at the School of Information Systems, Singapore Management University (SMU). Prior to joining SMU, I spent three years at A*STAR as a research scientist. I obtained a PhD Degree in Computer Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2014 on a fully funded scholarship from A*STAR, and Bachelor of Computing with First Class Honors from National University of Singapore in 2009 as the top student in Computer Science.

My general interest lies in the broad areas of data mining, machine learning and artificial intelligence. In particular, I have been working on the following areas: learning on graphs and information networks; Web and social media analytics; recommendation systems; application of knowledge graphs.
