About Me

I am a Principal Software Research Architect at NVIDIA. Before that, I was a Senior Researcher at Microsoft Research Redmond. I received my Ph.D. and B.E. from Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and Shanghai Jiao Tong University, respectively.

I am broadly interested in computer networking with a special focus on data center networking. I truly see myself as a fusion of a software engineer and a network plumber. I have rich experience in developing and operating production cloud networks. Currently, I am mainly focusing on network infrastructure to support hyperscale AI workloads. While my primary goal isn't publication, I do contribute to the academic community by sharing my insights through various publications.
