I'm currently a Lecturer in the Department of Computer Science, College of Engineering, Mathematics, and Physical Science at the University of Exeter. Before joining Exeter, I graduated with an outstanding BSc in Mathematics and Applied Mathematics from Shandong University (China) in 2013, obtained a PhD in Mathematics and Statistics from University of Leicester (UK) in 2017, and worked as a research fellow in the Department of Informatics, University of Sussex (UK) during the period 2017 - 2019, and as a postdoc in the Department of Computer Science, University of Exeter (UK) during the period 2019 - 2020.


My research interests focus on probabilistic machine modelling and non-parametric Bayesian predictive methods such as Gaussian Process and Student-t Process modelling. As their applications, I also have expertise in time series prediction, financial data analysis, algorithmic fairness and human mobility.
