I am a research scientist in Visa Research. I successfully defended my thesis Algorithms and Coresets for Large Scale Kernel Smoothing on 20 April 2017 at the School of Computing at the University of Utah. I graduated with Ph.D. degree in Computing: Data Management & Analysis Track at the School of Computing of the University of Utah. I was a member of the Data Group at Utah. I was working with Dr. Jeff Phillips.
I got my Master Degree in Computing: Graphics and Visualization in University of Utah and Bachelor Degree of Computer Science in Nankai University, China
