I am an Associate Professor (UK eq. Reader) in Information Systems in the Department of Informatics and Media at Uppsala University, Sweden. I also teach in the Department for Continuing Education and am a Visiting Fellow at the University of Oxford. Previously, I was a Senior Researcher in the Oxford e-Research Centre within the Department of Engineering Science at the University of Oxford working on the EU H2020 PhenoMeNal project (large-scale computing for medical metabolomics); a Research Associate in the Data Science Institute and Department of Computing at Imperial College London; and a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Oxford. I received a PhD in Computer Science from the School of Systems Engineering at the University of Reading, UK in 2010 and was supervised by Professor Vassil Alexandrov.
I was born and raised in Hong Kong and once competed (and won a bronze medal) in the World Tenpin Bowling Youth Championship. I am not so good at tenpin bowling these days.
