Brief Bio


I am currently an associate professor in the Computer Science and Technology Department of the Tianjin University at Tianjin, China. I got my PhD from the Computer Science and Technology Department at Harbin Institute of Technology in China in 2010 under the supervision of Prof. Tiejun Zhao.



Research Interests

I am broadly interested in social computing, with a focus on the analysis of social media content, the profile of individuals’ personality and psychology. I am also interested in the natural language processing technologies, especially in the semantic analysis in social context.
