I am a fifth year graduate student in CSAIL at MIT. My research interests include computer architecture, database systems and graph analytics. I work on the scalability of big data applications (DBMS and Graph analytics) on mutlicore systems (up to 1000 cores) and propose both software or hardware solutions to enhance scalability.

My advisor is Professor Srinivas Devadas and I'm also working together with Professor Andrew Pavlo. During undergraduate, I worked with Professor Onur Mutlu as a research intern in the summer of 2011.

Before coming to MIT, I earned my Bachelor degree from Electronic Engineering from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China. I have also been to Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, as a transfer student in 2010.
