I completed my Ph.D. in Computer Science at National Taiwan University under the supervision of Prof. Winston H. Hsu and Prof. Hong-Yuan Mark Liao. From 2013 to 2014, I was doing visiting research at Columbia University, supervised by Prof. Shih-Fu Chang.
I am currently a research scientist at FX Palo Alto Laboratory (FXPAL) .
My research focuses on social media analytics by leveraging user-contributed data as social sensors. My further interests include: Location/User/Group Profiling and Recommendation, Multimedia Retrieval and Mining, Affective Computing, Machine Learning.
