I am an associate professor of Computer Science at Lafayette College. I completed my baccalaureate degree in Computer Science and Engineering at Zhejiang University in China and earned my Ph.D in Computer Science at Iowa State University. My research is interdisciplinary in nature in that it involves Artificial Intelligence (AI), Theoretical Computer Science, and Game Theory. My research focuses on building logical foundations in AI. More specifically, I have been working in the area of Knowledge Representation and Reasoning (KRR), representing information about the world in a form that a computer system can utilize, designing formalisms that make complex systems easier to devise and build, and incorporating theoretical findings from logic to automated reasoning.
