I am a PhD candidate in Department of Computer Science at Columbia University. I am working with Professor Junfeng Yang in the Software Systems Lab. My research focuses on software reliability, programming languages, distributed systems, and operating systems. Before coming to Columbia, I earned my bachelor's degree with honors from Andrew Yao's special class at Tsinghua University.
I am an active programming competitor. I won the fifth place in China National Olympiad in Informatics (Chinese equivalent of USACO) back in high school. I attended ACM/ICPC, Topcoder, and Google Code Jam in my college and graduate school years. I am now serving as the coach for Columbia's programming contest team.
