"The Only Easy Day Was Yesterday." - Navy Seal

I am a faculty member in the Department of Computer Science at School of Informatics, Xiamen University. Before joining XMU, I was a faculty in the Department of Computer Science at Yale University. I received my Master and PhD Degrees from the Department of Computer Science at Wayne State University in 2012 and 2014, respectively, under the supervision of Dr. Hongwei Zhang. I received my Bachelor Degree in Information Security and Bachelor Degree in Economics from Nankai University in 2007. Please see my CV (English, Chinese) for more information.

Research

I am broadly interested in computer systems and architecture, with a focus on computer networks, formal methods in distributed systems, cyber-physical systems and machine learning systems. I publish in top-tier system conferences (e.g., SC, INFOCOM, AAAI and RTSS) and journals (e.g., ToN, JSAC, and TMC). My work has been deployed or adopted by multiple academic organizations and industry partners.

I am looking for self-motivated graduate students (on both Master and Ph.D. level) for Fall 2021. If you are interested in working on exciting projects on computer systems, please drop me an email.
