I am a phd student in the Data Center Systems Laboratory(DCSL) at EPFL, advised by Prof. Edouard Bugnion. My current research lies in the fields of computer systems and networking. 

I received my Master's degree in Computer Science from University of California, San Diego and my Bachelor’s degree in Information Engineering from Southeast University. During my master studies, I was a graduate student researcher at CAIDA advised by Dr. Ricky Mok and Prof. kc claffy. In CAIDA, my work was mainly focused on studying web-based speedtest tools and their applications in the cloud. After my master studies, I also spent some time working with Prof. Laurent Vanbever at ETH Zürich on network verification.
