I am currently an assitant professor at University at Buffalo, Department of Computer Science and Engineering. I'm looking for prospective PhD students for Spring 23/Fall 23 who are interested in database management and database system research. Please feel free to drop me an email for inquiry.
I am also happy to work with Current MS students in CSE who have relevant research experience or have taken a graduate-level database course (e.g., CSE562) on independent studies.
I graduated with a PhD in computer science from the School of Computing at University of Utah in 2021. My advisors are Prof. Feifei Li and Prof. Jeff Phillips. I hold a Bachelor's degree from the ACM Class of Shanghai Jiao Tong University. In Fall 2015, I worked as a research assistant at Hong Kong Polytechnic University and was supervised by Prof. Eric Lo. My undergraduate research advisor at SJTU was Prof. Kenny Zhu.
My current research interest is in large-scale data management systems; in particular, approximate query processing and query optimization, OLTP and OLAP engines, and streaming processing.
I was supported by the Google PhD Fellowship from Fall 2019 to Spring 2021.
