Academic Experience

Learning and Living

PhD Candidate, RMIT University

August 2019 - Present

This is a completely new stage for me. I can explore some of the most profound areas and state-of-the-art technologies  with the help of my supervisors and colleagues.

Master of Information Technology, The University of Melbourne

July 2017 - July 2019

I received a comprehensive education of information technology and related topic such as data mining, AI.

Bachelor of Engineering, Zhejiang University

September 2012 - June 2017

I got a bachelor degree majoring in Automation. Meanwhile, I found out that I'm interested in Computer Science stuff and started learning some programming languages.

Dean’s Honours List 2018

This prize is issued by the Melbourne School pf Engineering, The University of Melbourne to the top 5% students in recognition of their academic excellence.

The FUELHACK Hackathon Winner 1st place

FuelHack is a hackathon to apply technology and new solutions to solve either Reduce fuel usage across the Linfox fleet or Reduce emissions and carbon footprint generated by Linfox vehicles via reduction of fuel usage. We present an online routing solution which combine machine learning techniques and the latest researches on the car fuel efficiency.

The 12th WSDM Cup Honorable Mention 3rd place

WSDM Cup is a data mining/ machine learning competition held by the ACM International Conference on Web Search and Data Mining. In this contest, we use the data from Sichuan Airline to build an AI platform that can optimize the flight schedule once some emergency event happens.
