Liang Wang is a research associate in the Computer Laboratory at University of Cambridge, United Kingdom. In 2003, he received his BEng in Computer Science and Mathematics from Tongji University, Shanghai, China. Later, he received both his MSc and PhD degrees in Computer Science from University of Helsinki, Finland in 2011 and 2015 respectively. Liang’s research interests include system and network optimisation, information-centric networks, machine learning, and big data frameworks.
I am interested in scalability challenges in processing large and high-dimensional data sets. Specifically, I have been studying using random projection for dimensionality reduction on Apache Spark, and optimising index size and query accuracy using approximate nearest neighbour search.
