Haitao Yuan (袁海涛 in Chinese) is currently a postdoc research fellow working with Prof. Gao Cong at Singtel Cognitive and Artificial Intelligence Lab for Enterprises(SCALE@NTU). Prior to that, he received his Ph.D. degree in computer science from Tsinghua University, supervised by Prof. Guoliang Li and Prof. Ling Feng. Furthermore, Haitao is fortunate to enjoy a close academic collaboration with Prof. Zhifeng Bao.

Haitao’s research focuses on developing innovative technologies that can effectively and efficiently utilize spatio-temporal data to benefit people. To achieve this goal, Haitao concentrates on three key research areas (SIR):

  • Developing Scalable spatio-temporal data storage systems
  • Creating Intelligent spatio-temporal applications
  • Ensuring Robust spatio-temporal data curation

He has published 10+ papers in the top DB/DM conferences and journals (SIGMOD, VLDB, ICDE, WWW, TKDE, etc).

Feel free to catch me if interested to discuss ideas or work together. 😜
