Short Biography

I am a 2nd-year PhD student in Computer and Information Science Department at University of Pennsylvania, advised by Prof. Zack Ives. My primary research interest is database systems. In particular, I am interested in data integration, query processing and distributed data management systems. I also work with Prof. Boon Thau Loo on provenance for distributed systems. I am a member of the Penn Database Group and NetDB@Penn research group.

Before entering graduate school at Penn, I received my B.S. and M.Phil. degrees in computer science from Fudan University and Chinese University of Hong Kong, respectively.
