I am an associate professor in School of Computing at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Currently, I am also serving as the interim director of Holland Computing Center. I received my B.S. degree and M.S. degree in Computer Science from Zhejiang University, and Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from the University of California-Davis. After my Ph.D. graduation, I spent four years as a postdoctoral researcher at Sandia National Laboratories, California. My research concentrates on big data analysis and visualization, high-performance computing, and user interfaces and interaction.
