Biography

I am a second-year Ph.D. student in the Department of Computer Science at Duke University, advised by Prof. Danyang Zhuo. My research interests include cloud computing and datacenter networks, with a focus on kernel bypass networking and hardware acceleration.

Before Duke, I received my bachelor’s degree from Peking University. I am also fortunate to work with other excellent researchers and engineers, including Wei Bai, Mahmoud Elhaddad, and Shachar Raindel when I intern at Microsoft. I also worked closely with Yibo Zhu and Chuanxiong Guo when I was in ByteDance.
