Haonan Lu

Postdoctoral Researcher, Computer Science

Princeton University

Microsoft Research (NY)

I am currently a joint postdoctoral researcher at Princeton University and Microsoft Research. My advisor is Prof. Wyatt Lloyd and Dr. Siddhartha Sen. I received my Ph.D. in the Department of Computer Science at University of Southern California. I spent the last two years of Ph.D. in the Network System group at Princeton University. My Ph.D. advisor is Prof. Wyatt Lloyd.

My research focuses on advancing the state of the art in the understanding, design, and implementation of distributed storage systems. One line of my work studies the consistency-performance tradeoffs in large-scale production systems. The current focus of my research is the design of performance-optimal distributed transactional systems that have the lowest possible latency and highest possible throughput. I am also interested in leveraging Machine Learning techniques to solve problems in distributed systems.

Before joining USC, I obtained my B.S. degrees in Computer Science (graduate with honors) and Mathematics from Florida State University.
