I'm currently a 4th-year PhD student in Computer Science at Rice University. My advisor is Prof. T. S. Eugene Ng and I work closely with Prof. Ang Chen. My research interest generally lies in the modeling, designing and implementation of networking systems. In particular, I work on problems that revolve around the performance, fault-tolerance, and reliability issues that arise within modern datacenters. I'm interested in exploiting emerging underlying technologies such as optical devices and programmable switching ASICs to solve those problems.I obtained M.S. degree from Nanjing University and B.S. degree from Wuhan University, both in Computer Science.
