I am currently a Ph.D. candidate in the Computer Science Department
at the College of William and Mary, under the supervision of
Prof. Evgenia Smirni. My research interests lie in the performance evaluation/diagnosis, and
resource management in large-scale storage systems and cloud data centers.
As well, I enjoy working on data mining and machine learning problems, especially in aspects of time series.
Before coming to W&M, I got my bachelor degree in Computer Science from Beihang University (BUAA) in 2012. Check my resume out.
Update (12/2016): I am going to join Google New York Office in May 2017. Super excited about my new adventures!
Update (06/2016): Our paper on TailGuard has been accepted in SRDS, to be held in Hungary, in September 2016!
Update (03/2016): Our paper on ATM is accepted in DSN, to be held in France, in June 2016!
