I am Vice President at Alibaba Group. I manage several core technical divisions at Alibaba to drive data intelligent infrastructure and applications in e-commerce and cloud business, including big data and AI infrastructure, search & recommendation, and advertising platform. Before joining Alibaba, I used to be a partner development manager at Microsoft and a researcher at Microsoft Research. My research is in the areas of cloud computing, database systems, machine learning, search, and advertising. I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science at Columbia University and B.S. at University of Science and Technology of China. I am a fellow of the IEEE.
