I am a Senior Lecturer in Faculty of Health, Engineering and Sciences, University of Southern Queensland (USQ), Australia. Before joined USQ, I was a Research Associate with the e-Discovery Lab, Faculty of Science and Technology at Queensland University of Technology (QUT), Australia, and completed PhD in QUT as well. My research interests include Information Retrieval, Text Mining, and Knowledge Engineering.

During my research career, I have gained a wealth of knowledge and experience in dealing with massive datasets and delivering solutions to complex research problems, and made many contributions to Ontology Learning, Web Intelligence, Data Mining, and Information Retrieval. The research results have been published in many highly ranked journals (e.g., IEEE TKDE) and conferences (e.g., ICDE, PAKDD, CIKM, KSEM, and Web Intelligence). In recognition of my research performance, I was awarded the 2009 Dean’s Award for Academic Excellence by Faculty of Science and Technology at QUT.

I have been highly active in professional services. I have served as an organizer or PC member in many events in World Wide Web and Data Mining. As a reviewer, I have been invited to serve many highly ranked journals including TKDE, TPDS, WWWJ, and KBS.

In the past years I have been extensively involved in tertiary teaching. Currently I am in the supervision team of a number of PhD and Research Master theses.
