I am a fifth year Ph.D student at department of computer science and engineering, university of California, Riverside. My thesis advisor is Prof. Tao Jiang. My research interests include algorithm design and computational biology. In my opinion, these two research area rely on each other. New computational challenges arise from biological data, and more effective and efficient algorithms are urgently needed to tackle them.

Besides my research, I am enjoying the life in Southern California, the inexhaustible sunshine, clearest sky, flourishing palms, golden desert and the beautiful Pacific. The last but not least, here is the hometown of the most exciting NBA team Lakers.

I am interested in all kinds of the music (The corrs is my all-time favorite band and Maroon 5 is my current love), reading novels, especially Agatha Christies meticulous detective stories, movies, traveling, tennis, and of course, shopping.

I am also taking piano lessons now. Although it is a little late for me to start learning piano, I have very high enthusiasm and I practice a lot. My final objective is being able to play all the beautiful hymns.
