About Me

I will join CSE, HKUST as an assistant professor in August 2023. I am recruiting Ph.D. students to work on research topics, including machine learning for data management, and distributed/decentralized machine learning systems; please contact me by email with your latest resume if you are interested; there are openings for Spring/Fall 2024.

I was a Postdoctoral Researcher in Computer Science Department, ETH Zurich under the supervision of Dr. Ce Zhang. I accomplished my Ph.D. program in Computer Science Department Rice University. My adviser was Dr. Chris Jermaine and I was co-advised by Dr. Anastasios Kyrillidis for my Ph.D. thesis. I got my master degree from Computer Science Department Rice University supervised by Dr. Ron Goldman, and bachelor degree from Computer Science Department Fudan University guided by Dr. Bo Yan for research.

Research Interests

My main research focuses are data management for machine learning, and distributed/decentralized machine learning systems. Concretely, I build systems to support giant foundation models over distributed and decentralized environment.

Academic Service


Most of my spare time (if there is any) is spent on soccer. I am a big fan of Liverpool. As Klopp once said, “98% of football is about dealing with failure and still being able to smile and find joy in the game the next day.”, which is also true for research, I believe.
