About Me

I am a computer science Ph.D. student in the ADSL lab at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, advised by Professor Andrea Arpaci-Dusseau and Professor Remzi Arpaci-Dusseau. My research interest lies in computer systems, especially distributed storage systems and operating systems.

Currently, I am focusing on distributed replication protocols, database transaction processing, and their implications on storage.

Say hello to the Hux OS kernel! It is a weekend operating system kernel project built to be minimal and understandable. I documented my development of Hux into a complete set of GitHub Wiki pages - please do check them out!
