I am a fourth year graduate student, working under the supervision of Prof Michael Scott in the system group. Prior to coming here, I got my BS and MS degrees in Computer Science, both from Zhejiang University, China.

My research interests lie in parallel computing and hardware/software cooperation, with an emphasis on compiler support for speculation techniques in transactional memory and synchronization.

Life Outside Work

I spend most of my spare time reading. I maintain a life-long reading list for myself, hoping that it could be finished as early as possible so I could start another life happily. I am also a big fan of Woody Allen's movies and the longest run cartoon series, the Simpons.
