I have joined Department of Computer Science at University of Manitoba.
Please check my new webpage here.


I am a postdoctoral associate as well as an NSERC postdoctoreal fellow at the CSAIL lab in MIT.
My adviser is Dr. Charles Leiserson. I am a member of  Supertech  group in CSAIL.
I completed my PhD in Algorithm & Complexity Group in University of Waterloo in Summer 2014.


I have a broad interest in design, analysis and applications of algorithms as well as performance engineering of software systems.
I am particularly interested in online problems such as bin packing, list update, and k-Server. I am also interested in applications of algorithms in text compression, graph partitioning, resource allocation in cloud, and succinct data structures.
