I am an associate professor in Department of Computer Science and Engineering at University of Connecticut. I did my undergraduate study at Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, where I received a bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering and a second (minor) bachelor's degree in Computer Science and Technology in 1994. After receiving my Master's degree from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, I worked for a startup company (now part of Freescale Semiconductor, Inc.) in Chicago suburb for five years. Then I returned to school and received my PhD in Computer Science at University of California, Davis under Dan Gusfield in 2007. From 2007 to 2013, I was an assistant professor at Computer Science and Engineering Department, University of Connecticut. My main research interests are in computational biology and bioinformatics.
