I am a third-year graduate student of CS, UW-Madison. My research interests include theoretical and systemic problems related to data management, especially large-scale statistical data analysis. I work in Database Systems Group, and my adviser is Christopher Ré. I did a half-year internship in HP Labs China, working with Fei Chen. Before coming to Madison, I got my bachelor from Peking University summer, 2009 in EECS. I exchanged to CPEG, HKUST during my first semester of sophomore in fall, 2006. I attended Stanford Summer Session in summer, 2008, and worked in NLP group. I also worked on a research project supported by PKU President's Funding, advised by Professor Yan Zhang, related to PageRank. At the last year in college, I worked on my final year project on system virtualization with Professor Zhen Xiao, and also did my internship in MSRA, WSM Group.
