Welcome to my home page.
I was a Software Engineer in Microsoft (China) Co. Ltd. between May 2015 to Oct 2015, working on keyword selection in Ad Understanding team in Bing Ads. Before that, I was a Software Engineer in Yahoo! (Beijing) R&D center between July 2014 to March 2015, working in Advertising&Data (AD&D) team.
Before joining Yahoo!, I achieved my PhD degree in July 2014 in Peking University. I researched on mathematical rormula recognition and retrieval from PDF Documents as my PhD thesis. My advisors in Peking University are Prof. Zhi Tang and Dr. Liangcai Gao.
Besides, I'm also an active contributor to an open source project, Netty. Find my commits here.
