Eligible to supervise Masters and PhD (as Co-Supervisor) - email supervisor to discuss availability.


I am currently a Lecturer at the School of Computer Science, The University of Adelaide, and Honorary Lecturer at Department of Computing , Macquarie University. I obtained PhD in 2017 from the School of Computer Science, The University of Adelaide under the supervision of Prof.Michael Sheng and A/Prof. Kerry Taylor (ANU) . I got B.E. from Wuhan University and M.E. from Beihang University in China.

From 2017 to 2019, I was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Macquarie University. In 2016, I spent half year as a full-time research intern in IBM Research, Australia . I also have six-year's industry experience as a (senior) software engineer in Nuctech Company Limited and Thomson Reuters .

I am interested in topics in areas including text mining, natural language processing, information retrieval and Internet of Things applications.

My current research relates to three specific areas: i) Adversarial attacks on deep neural models for text; ii) Neural dialogue systems in smart space; and iii) Data analysis for medical data.

I am seeking highly motivated and focused students with backgrounds and interests in Computer Science, Mathematics, and Engineering. For more information, please go to my Web page or email me directly.

My interested areas includes text mining, natural language processing, information retrieval and Internet of Things applications, but not limited to. 

My current research relates to three specific areas: 

i) Adversarial attacks on deep neural models for text; 
ii) Neural dialogue systems in smart space; 
iii) Data analysis for medical data.
