Hey there! I am a Research Fellow at CSE of University of Michigan working with Prof. Ang Chen. Prior to that, I was a Postdoc Associate in CS at RICE University. Before that, I was a high-speed network engineer at ByteDance focusing on developing RDMA middleware and datacenter systems. I got my Ph.D. degree in Computer Science at Fudan University, co-advised by Prof. Jie Wu and Prof. Yang Xu in Dec. 2021. I got B.S. in Software Engineering from Central South University in Jun. 2016. My research has received Usenix Security 2023 Distinguished Paper Award and CoNEXT 2022 Best Paper Award. I also received Distinguished RDMA Programming Instructor prize from HPC-AI advisory council.
My research interests mainly lie in the fields of Distributed System, Networked System and Data Center Network. In particular, I focus on the system design, development and optimization about RDMA-enhanced datacenter systems, eBPF systems, OS security, network protocol stack and RPC.
