Qiong's HKUST Faculty Profile

What's New

I am recruiting PhD students in the CSE Program in Hong Kong and the DSA Program in Guangzhou for the Fall semesters of 2024 and 2025.

I gave a keynote talk (slides) on GPU Acceleration for Data Processing and Analytics at the 2023 IEEE International Conference on Big Data at Sorrento, Italy on December 17, 2023.

I am on leave from CSE and am serving as a Professor of Data Science and Analytics (DSA) at the newly estabilished HKUST (Guangzhou) campus. My HKUST (Guangzhou) Faculty Profile is up. DSA is recruiting both faculty members and PhD students.
