I'm recruiting PhD students who will be working in areas of data management and data mining, especially on spatial, temporal, and web data. I'm also interested in high-performance computing including using cloud computing, distributed computing (such as map-reduce) and modern hardware. Students are preferred who have strong study records, especially in mathematics or algorithms, and of course, who are hardworking. If you are interested in being my student, please read the message on my homepage (http://www.ruizhang.info
