Teaching

I am very passionate about teaching! At the University of Queensland, I have TA'd for two core Master level Computer Science courses: INFS7410: Information Retrieval and Web Search and INFS7202: Web Information Systems. I have served as the Head of TA for INFS7202/3202 course, where I worked closely with the course coordinator Dr. Tony Chen to design course syllabus and content. I also give guest lectures in INFS7410 course under the guidance of the course coordinator A/Prof. Guido Zuccon.

I have also worked as a tutor at UQ resident halls, where I mentored students about COMP7702: Artificial Intelligence and INFS7410: Information Retrieval and Web Search.

UQ: Information Retrieval and Web Search

Teaching Assistant, Spring 2020, Spring 2021
This course discusses the theory, design, and implementation of Information Retrieval (IR) techniques in text-based information systems. The theoretical component of the course focuses on IR methods for the processing, indexing, querying, ranking, organisation, and classification of textual documents, including Web documents. A variety of current research topics are also covered, including professional search and recommendation systems. The practical component of the course addresses the design and implementation of high-capacity text retrieval and filtering systems such as web search engines. I TA'd this course with A/Prof. Guido Zuccon in Spring 2020 and Spring 2021. My responsibilities included holding weekly tutorials and office hours, designing and grading assignments, projects, and exams, as well as a guest lecture about using BERT model for reranking.
