I am a second year PhD student in Computer Science department at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, working with Prof. Nitin Vaidya
Before coming to US, I obtained my bachelor's degree at Tsinghua University, where I studied computer science at "Yao Class".

I am interested in distributed computing&algorithms, theoretical computer science, and the intersection between theory and distributed systems.
