I am a first year CS PhD student at UC Berkeley, advised by Prof. Ion Stoica.

My research focuses on distributed systems and networking. I do also work on any problem that interests me.

Previously, my experience at University of Washington (2012-2013, with Prof. Shyam Gollakota and Prof. Arvind Krishnamurthy) and Microsoft Research Asia (2011-2012, with Wenjun Hu) shed light on my path to graduate school (and beyond). I earned my bachelor degree in Electrical Engineering and Information Science from University of Science and Technology of China (aka USTC) in 2013.
