Biography (CV, LinkedIn)

I am now a Software Engineer at Google Cloud Platform. I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science at Rice University in 2020, under the supervision of Prof. Peter Varman. I received my M.S. in Computer Science at Rice University in 2017, under the supervision of Prof. Vivek Sarkar. I received my B.Sc degree in Computer Science with First Class Honors from Hong Kong Baptist University in 2014, with a minor degree in Applied Mathematics.

Currently, I am working on design and optimization of modern SSD architectures. For my Ph.D., I focused on developing QoS algorithms for distributed storage systems. I also have the experience working in GPU computing and compiler optimizations.
