Hello! I am a first-year Ph.D. student in Computer Science at Columbia University advised by Asaf Cidon. I am broadly interested in computer systems, especially storage systems and memory technologies. Before starting my Ph.D., I was a software engineer at VMware in the vSAN group working on the next generation of vSAN. I received my master’s degree at Columbia University and my bachelor’s degree at Harbin Institute of Technology.
