Yufei Tao is a Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK). Before joining CUHK in 2006, he was a Visiting Scientist at the Carnegie Mellon University during 2002-2003, and an Assistant Professor at the City University of Hong Kong during 2003-2006. He received a Hong Kong Young Scientist Award in 2002 from the Hong Kong Institution of Science. He obtained his PhD degree from Hong Kong University of Science and Technology in 2002, proudly under the supervision of Prof. Dimitris Papadias.
He is an associate editor of ACM Transactions on Database Systems (TODS), and of IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering (TKDE). He is/was a PC co-chair of International Conference on Data Engineering (ICDE) 2014, a PC co-chair of International Symposium on Spatial and Temporal Databases (SSTD) 2011, an area PC chair of ICDE 2011, a senior PC member of International Conference of Information and Knowledge (CIKM) 2010, 2011, 2012, and the PC chairs of the demonstration track in SIGMOD 2010 and the tutorial track in SIGMOD 2013.
He also holds a position of Visiting Professor, under the World Class University (WCU) program of the Korean government, in the Division of Web Science and Technology, Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), Republic of Korea.
Yufei has worked extensively on indexing and query optimization in spatial and temporal databases. His current research aims to leverage the theory of data structures and computational geometry to develop practical algorithms with non-trivial theoretical guarantees, particularly in dealing with massive datasets that do not fit in memory.

I supervise at most 2 PhDs simultaneously. Currently there is an opening. Applications can be sent in by email, and are accepted until the position is filled. Each application must include a detailed transcript (of the applicant's undergraduate study) and a CV that lists the applicant's awards (since high school) and publications. Applicants with strong background in theoretical algorithms are preferred. The accepted student is expected to research on both database systems and theory.
