About Me

I'm a second year PhD student at Sysnet, UCSD. I'm co-advised by Geoff Voelker and George Porter. My current research interests are distributed and cloud systems with an emphasis on serverless infrastructures. Prior to UCSD, I earned my Bachelor's and Master's degrees back in China at UESTC, where I co-authered a few papers.

Current Work

Sprocket: exploring intra-video processing parallelism the cloud. We are building a modular, extremely flexible video processing pipeline that handles videos in the cloud. Using the massive amount of parallelism enabled by the serverless architecture, videos can be processed and delivered with little latency.
