Picture of me!

I am a graduate student at the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering (ECE), University of Toronto, supervised by Natalie Enright Jerger. We are also working closely with Mark Jeffrey at University of Toronto and Mingyu Gao at Tsinghua University.

Generally, I am interested in solving problems relating to software infrastructure and heterogeneous hardware in cloud computing.

Now I am working as a Research Intern in Networking Research Group at Microsoft Research, my manager is Yongqiang Xiong.

representing it so as to
make the solution transparent.
