About Me...

I am a second year graduate student in CSAIL at MIT. My research interest lies in Computer Architecture and Database Systems. I'm currently working on the scalability of OLTP database systems on future 1000-core architecture. Specifically, I'm identifying bottlenecks in concurrency control, logging and indexing subsystems and trying to solve these problems using software/hardware codesign.

Before coming to MIT, I did my undergrad at Tsinghua University in Beijing, China. I have also been to Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore, as a transfer student and Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) as a research summer intern.
