I am a Ph.D. student in Computer Science.
I work at the AMPLab with Prof. Ion Stoica on distr..ibu.t..ed systems.

Previously, I received my bachelor from USTC in 2013. I've also worked/interned/visited at Databricks (2016 Summer), Alluxio (2015 Summer), MSR (2014 Summer), UW (2012-2013) and MSR-Asia (2011-2012).
