Research Interests

My research interests include social network analysis and social multimedia computing. In social network analysis, I foucs more on computational modeling of complex user behaviors, including individual user behavior prediction, social group analysis and information propogation modeling. In social multimedia computing, I am keen to promote the convergence of user behavioral modeling and multimedia content analysis, with the ultimate goal to bridge the gap between multimedia data and user needs.
