My research interest is about database management. I have been working extensively on uncertain databases in the last few years, covering topics like uncertain data models, probabilistic queries, indexing structures, data cleaning, and data mining. Recently, I am also interested in cloud databases and information network. If you are strong in databases and algorithms, and you have passion in solving real-world problems, you are welcome to my group!
Research topics/projects
Uncertain databases, social network, cloud databases

My research interests include real-time systems, transaction processing, information retrieval, data mining, data analysis, and big-data management --- basically anything that deals with large amounts of data. Currently, I am supervising/co-supervising 7 graduate students. Some of the research problems I am working on are related to social networks (such as Facebook), social tagging systems (such as Delicious and Flickr), and web search engines (such as Google). Other research problems are related to the processing and management of large sequence data (such as biological data). Previously, I have also worked on mining data with uncertainty.
