Hello! Welcome to my homepage at Stanford database group. If you are looking for some non-academic information, please visit my other homepage.

I finished my Ph.D. in computer science at Stanford University in 2003. My dissertation was on Content-Based Music Retrieval on Acoustic Data, advised by Prof. Jeff Ullman. I came to Stanford in 1998, after receiving my M.S. degree from MIT and B.S. degree from Yale.

My research interests include data mining, information retrieval and signal processing. My Ph.D. thesis research focused on music database search, indexing and retrieval based on perceived similarity, that is, given a piece of musical recording (in raw audio format), how can we find similar (but not necessarily identical) pieces from the database?

For a non-technical tour you are welcome to visit my other home page.

Thanks for visiting!
