Jiechen Zhao

PhD Candidate

University of Toronto

I am a graduate student at the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering (ECE), University of Toronto, and I am fortunate to be supervised by Natalie Enright Jerger.

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

I worked as a Research Intern in Networking Research Group at Microsoft Research on research projects of resource disaggregation and SmartNIC-enabled systems.

Fiat Lux.

Solving a problem simply means
representing it so as to
make the solution transparent.
