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, cloud systems, and operating systems.

My current focus is on distributed replication protocols, database transaction processing, and their implications on modern storage systems. Previously, I have studied file systems and storage stack technologies for emerging hardware such as persistent memory.

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!
