Biography

Hong Cheng received her B.S. degree and M.Phil. degree in Computer Science from Zhejiang University and Hong Kong University of Science and Technology in 2001 and 2003, respectively. She then received her Ph.D. in Computer Science from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2008. She joined the Department of Systems Engineering and Engineering Management, The Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2008. Her main research area is data mining and information systems.

She received the Certificate of Recognition for the 2009 SIGKDD Doctoral Dissertation Award, and the 2010 Vice-Chancellor’s Exemplary Teaching Award of The Chinese University of Hong Kong.
