Efficient data retrieval becomes increasingly crucial in the era of Big Data. Within the data, around 80%~90% potentially useful business information is presented in unstructured form, such as text, images etc (C. Shilakes, J Tylman, Enterprise Information Portals, Merrill Lynch, 1998). My research focuses on the methods of syntactically and semantically analyse such data.

I currently work as a faculty in Xi'an Jiaotong University. I received the PhD from the University of Cambridge and EMBL-EBI. Later, I worked as a postdoctoral associate in Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
