Short Biography
 

Hi, my name is Tianyin. I'm a system guy, an optimistic day dreamer, a modern hippie with the 60s idea, and a crazy fan of FC Barcelona. I'm currently in my 3rd year as a PhD student in Operating System Research (Opera) Group, UC San Diego (UCSD). My advisor is Yuanyuan Zhou (YY), the coolest advisor I've ever known. In Opera, the biggest lesson I've learned is to be serious to research: to work on real problems and to build useful things that can really make a difference, instead of playing games.

Before joining UCSD, I worked as a research staff in University of Goettingen. I received both my B.Sc. and M.Eng. Degrees in Computer Science from Nanjing University, China in 2007 and 2010, respectively. In 2012, I interned in NetApp ATG, where I got the chance to play with real storage systems. In 2013, I interned in Whova (check it out if you haven't) which is an awesome startup spun off from Opera.

Research Interests
 

My research interests are in Computer Systems and Networks, with the goal of making computer systems and networks more manageable, scalable, reliable, and available.

As system people, I'm interested in all kinds of inter-disciplinary black magics and hacks such as compiler techniques, machine learning, statistics, etc. The spirit of system research is problem-oriented. System people should be able to use any kind of weapon to kill the dragon (*NOT* Don Quixote's windmills!).
