Life is a beautiful journey, moving from a good place to another. Since leaving my hometown Nanchang, I've stayed in Nanjing for 6 years, Munich for 6 years, and California for 6 years. I obtained my Ph.D in Computer Science from University of Munich (LMU), supervised by Prof. Hans-Peter Kriegel and Prof. Volker Tresp, and received the B.Sc and M.Sc degrees from Nanjing University.
