I am a PhD student at Penn studying Computer Science advised by Prof. Boon Thau Loo and Prof. Vincent Liu. My research interests are building distributed systems to tackle big data problems. I also have interests in networking, cloud computing and machine learning. Before Penn, I worked with Prof. James Cheng at CUHK. I had graduate education at Tsinghua University in Computer Science, and received B.E. degree from Harbin Institute of Technology with first class honors.
