I work on cloud storage systems in Alibaba Group. Before I worked at Intel from 2009 to 2015, mainly on operating systems-related projects. I am currently living in the Seattle area.

From 2002 to 2008 I was a PhD student in Department of Computer Science and Engineering at The Ohio State University, mainly working on compiler / run-time optimization techniques. My research publications can be found below.
