About

I am Silvery Fu. I'm a PhD candidate in CS at UC Berkeley.

I work on systems at NetSys, advised by Sylvia Ratnasamy.

Contact: silvery@eecs.berkeley.edu.

Research

My area of research is systems, networking, IoT, and data analytics.
An overview of my research is available here.

Currently, my focus is on developing a new computing stack (IoDA)
for IoT data apps. You can browse my work on IoDA, cloud-native systems, democratized infrastructure, and multimedia systems here.

Latest News: I am on the academic job market for Fall 2024.
