About Me

I am a fourth-year Ph.D. student majoring in Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Chicago, working with Jakob Eriksson and Xingbo Wu. Back in 2018, I earned my bachelor's degree in Computer Science from ShanghaiTech University. During the summer of 2022, I worked as a research intern in the storage team at Cockroach Labs.

You can find me on GitHub and Linkedin.


My research interests lie broadly in computer systems. Currently, I focus on various topics in storage systems, including key-value stores, data indexing and transaction processing.

Here are the most recent research papers that I worked on:
