Bio Sketch

   My name is Peixiang Zhao. I am an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science at Florida State University. I graduated in Jun. 2012 from the Data Mining Research Group and the Data and Information Systems Laboratory in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), under the guidance of Prof. Jiawei Han. I got my B.S. and M.S. degrees from the Department of Computer Science and Technology (it has now become the School of Electronics Engineering and Computer Science) in Peking University in 2001 and 2004, respectively, and I used to be a Ph.D. student at the Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2004-2007, under the guidance of Prof. Jeffrey X. Yu. As a summer intern, I worked at Microsoft Research Asia (Beijing) and Microsoft Research (Redmond) in 2011 and 2010, respectively, and IBM Research (Yorktown Heights) and IBM Research (Hawthorne) in 2009 and 2008, respectively.


Research Overview

   My research interests lie in database systems, data mining, and data-intensive computation and analytics. Specifically, I am focused on the problems of modeling, querying, and mining graph-structured data, such as large-scale graph databases, information networks, and social networks, which have proven to be popular and flourishing in a wide spectrum of real world application domains, such as bioinformatics, computer systems, business processes, and ultimately, the Web.
