Research Statement

My research interests are in the area of data management (i.e., similarity search on high dimensional data, data exploration techniques on multi-dimensional dataset). In particular, I focus on improving query time efficiency and query result accuracy. I do research because I really enjoy it. Especially, I want to do top research works which will make a difference to our life.
