About Me

I am a Senior Researcher at Microsoft Research Redmond. I received my Ph.D. from Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology in 2017, advised by Prof. Kai Chen. Before that, I received my B.E. in Information Security from Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 2013.

I am broadly interested in computer networking with a special focus on data center networking. While my official job title is researcher, 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 enable cloud-scale RDMA deployments. While my primary goal isn't publication, I do contribute to the academic community by sharing my insights through various publications.
