Yongrui Qin believes computer technology is changing the world significantly and rapidly and everyone can benefit from these developments.

A full-time PhD student in Mathematics and Computing, Yongrui completed a master degree in computer science in China.

The proposed title for his thesis is ‘Fuzzy Air Indexing Techniques for Efficient XML Full-Text Search in Wireless Environments’.

“Basically I am using key index data to tell customers with mobile devices when information they are interested in will be broadcast,” said Yongrui.

“I like doing research very much as it brings me challenges and opportunities to explore new knowledge of the world.”

Yongrui says support from his supervisor is crucial.

“My supervisor is actually a guide for my research work. He helped me to select a suitable research topic for myself and also teaches me how to improve my research ability. His guidance plays a vital role towards my PhD degree.

“USQ provides a lot of opportunities for students to learn how to do excellent research. Many research staff have excellent track records and students can benefit a lot from such an environment.

“The University’s UConnect system is also excellent. It saves me a lot of time, including handling computer problems, enrolment arrangement and casual contracts and so on.”

Yongrui also enjoys studying in Toowoomba.

“I chose USQ because I had friends studying here and USQ is a regional university and Toowoomba is a peaceful and small town and I really enjoy the lifestyle here.

“The people in my research group, including staff and students, are very hard working and friendly and always happy to help each other - I find that I can learn many things from them.

“You can receive good guidance at USQ as research groups here are usually quite small, which means that your supervisors can spend more time on you and take good care of you.”

With two years to go, Yongrui is looking to embark in a career in academia in Australia or overseas.

“It is good to choose USQ if you are looking for a good balance between study and life - just imagine how peaceful life would be in a regional city like Toowoomba.”
