About me

I am currently a Master student at School of Computer Science and Engineering, Sun Yat-sen University in China. I received my B.Eng from the same university.

My research interests broadly lie in distributed system, operating system and file system. I am obsessed with building large-scale efficient system software, incorporating modern software engineering techniques and technologies to solve real-world problems. In particular, I am enthusiatic about the development of datacenter-scale software that is robust, scalable, fault-tolerant, and maintainable. I gained some industry experience during my interships at WeChat, Tencent and PingCAP.

Having learnt a lot from the open-source community, I am devoted to passing the merits to others by constantly contributing to open-source projects. Checkout my GitHub profile for open-source projects I have contributed to!
