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.

My current research focus is on modernizing distributed replication protocols for emerging workloads, such as data-heavy replication and wide-area replication. Previously, I have studied file systems and kernel storage stack technologies for new hardware such as persistent memory.

If you don’t mind wasting a few seconds of your life, please take a look at these rather cool open-source projects I did!
