About me

I am a Computer Science PhD student at New York University advised by Professor Jinyang Li, and I am also a proud member of NYU System Group. I am broadly interested in doing research in distributed computing frameworks. Currently, my primary research work focuses on applying system techniques to improving the performance of machine learning frameworks.

Before going to NYU, I received my B.S. in Computer Science at Nanjing University, China, where I was advised by Professor Wenzhong Li, and worked on improving performance of wireless network.
