I am a third year Ph.D student in Computer Science Department of Illinois Institute of Technology, where I am a member of SPEAR(Systems for Performance, Energy, and Resiliency) Group and Prof. Zhiling Lan is my advisor. My research interests are parallel and distributed systems & high performance computing. Specifically, I'm interested in resource management, batch scheduling, network and storage, fascinated by the quest of improving overall system performance.
