State Key Laboratory of Computer Science,
Institute of Software, Chinese Academy of Sciences


I obtained a Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from Peking University in July 2012, and graduated with another Ph.D. degree from Griffith University (with National ICT Australia) in July 2014. Then, I joined Institute of Software in Chinese Academy of Sciences as an Associate Professor, where I was promoted to a Full Professor in 2017.
I have broad interest in artificial intelligence and algorithm engineering, and have particular interest in (1) Practical solving for NP-hard combinatorial problems, as well as understanding the underlying ideas through both experimental and theoretical analysis; (2) Efficient algorithms for computational logic problems; (3) Automatic algorithm design using optimization and learning techniques.
