I’m a full professor in the Department of Information Science at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock with passion in teaching and research Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. My research interests are causal AI, transfer learning, lifelong metric learning, active learning, density-based clustering, and network clustering.
I received the prestigious ACM SIGKDD Test of Time Award for my seminal paper about the Density Based Clustering Algorithm DBSCAN, which is one of the most popular clustering algorithms with many open source implementations, including scikit-learn.
I serve as member of editorial board for some International Journals including Trends in Artificial Intelligence. I also have been serve as Program Committee member for some primary international conferences including ACM SIGKDD.
I received my Ph.D. degree in computer science from the Ludwig-Maximilian Universität München in 1998. I have a MS degree in computer science from the Chinese Academy of Sciences and a BS degree in Mathematics from the Nankai University.
I’m a founder of the Midsouth Computational Biology and Bioinformatics Society.
Running is what I like to do as a hobby. I have finished many marathons including Chicago and San Francisco marathons. I also like cycling, swimming and hiking. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. My another favorite thing is to travel to different part of the world and learn different culture.
