I am a Research Scientist at WeBank AI Group. I received my Ph.D at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology Computer Science and Engineering, where my supervisors are Prof. Xiaojuan Ma and Prof. Huamin Qu.

Before joining HKUST, I was working in NetEase Games, a leading Chinese game operator. I obtained my master degree from Tsinghua University, supervised by Prof. Li Chen, and bachelor degree from Wuhan University, and got another bachelor degree in English Literature from School of Foreign Language at Huazhong University of Science and Technology.

My main research interests are in visualization, visual analytics, explainable machine learning, human-computer interaction and data science, with applications on FinTech, banking, intelligent supply chain, smart city, etc. I am dedicated to developing interactive and intelligent visualizations that optimize the analytical workflow of solving complex real-world data problems, promoting the interplay of human, machine, and data.
