I am a second-year Ph.D. student in Computer Science at Harvard University. I am fortunate to be advised by Prof. Minlan Yu. I am also a student researcher at Technical Systems & Infrastructure, Google. My research interest is broadly in computer systems and networking. I am particularly interested in applying machine learning techniques to solve system-related problems.

Prior to Harvard, I received M.S. in Computer Science from Columbia University in May 2021, working with Prof. Suman Jana and Prof. Ethan Katz-Bassett. I received B.S. with double majors in Computer Science and ACMS (Applied and Computational Math Sciences, Discrete Math and Algorithms option) from University of Washington, Seattle in June 2019.

Please feel free to send me an email or download my CV.


May 31, 2022 I am joining Google Sunnyvale for internship.
Nov 14, 2021 I am presenting at the Academic and NREN session of RIPE 83.
