Student Hiring

I am always looking for highly self-motivated Postdocs, Ph.D, and master students to work with me on databases. Please contact me if you are interested.



I am currently a professor at the School of Computer Science, Wuhan University. I am also a part of the TOTEM Database Laboratory. My interests are mainly on spatial database. I have published full research papers on venues in database and information systems as the first author, such as SIGMOD, PVLDB, ICDE, SIGIR, WSDM, TKDE, and ACM Computing Surveys.
