I am a fourth-year PhD student in Computer Science at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). I am fortunate to be advised by Prof. Ravishankar K. Iyer at the DEPEND research group in the Coordinated Science Laboratory. I am broadly interested in distributed systems, with a focus on performance and reliability perspectives. My recent research focuses have been on applying machine learning (e.g., reinforcement learning) to problems within the the design and management of distributed systems. [CV]
Before joining UIUC, I got my bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from the University of Hong Kong (HKU). I was advised by Prof. Heming Cui at the HKU Systems Software Group. I also spent a semester as a visiting student at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, where I worked at the WiNGS Lab led by Prof. Suman Banerjee.
I grew up in Qingdao, a beautiful city located on China’s Yellow Sea coast.
