Bio

Dr. Chenhao Ma is an Assistant Professor at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, Shenzhen. Prior to that, he was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Hong Kong, working with Prof. Reynold Cheng. He received his PhD degree from Department of Computer Science in the University of Hong Kong (HKU) in 2021. He once was a visiting student in the University of New South Wales (UNSW) in 2019. Till now, he has published more than 30 papers in the areas of database and data mining, including one of four Best of SIGMOD2020 (a world flagship conference in database areas, 4/458), and most of them were published in top-tier conferences and journals (e.g., SIGMOD, PVLDB, and TODS). He was awarded the ACM SIGMOD Research Highlight Award 2021. He has served as PC members and reviewers for several top conferences and journals (e.g., VLDB, KDD, WWW, CIKM, TKDE, and VLDBJ).
