Hello and welcome to my page. I got my Ph.D. degree in the College of Computing at Georgia Tech since 2009. I am advised by Dr.Karsten Schwan (1952~2015) and am a part of the CERCS research group.
I have been fortunate to have had opportunities to intern at different research labs and learn from some remarkable people during my Ph.D. study. I spent the summer of 2013 at Intel Science & Technology Center for Cloud Computing, Carnegie Mellon University working with Michael Kozuch. I spent the summer of 2012 at IBM T.J. Watson Research Center working with Dilma Da Silva and Kyung Ryu. I spent the fall of 2011 at Microsoft Research Asia working with Zhenyu Guo and the summer of 2010 at VMware working with Ajay Gulati.
In earlier year, I obtained my B.S. degree in Computer Science from Huazhong University of Science and Technology in 2007.
What I do
My academic research is focused around big data, cloud computing, system virtualization and distributed systems, and I am particularly interested in enterprise motivated real-world problems that embody complicated data analytics.
My graduate work developed streaming processing systems that analyzes live twitter logs to generate time-critical decisions, with millisecond-latency and MapReduce-equivalent throughput. Other work of mine include customer beneficial "fair'' resource sharing between applications for multi-tenant cloud networks, dependency detection and power management for virtualized data centers.
