About Me

I have been a Full Professor in School of Software at Shanghai Jiao Tong University and a member of Institute of Parallel And Distributed Systems (IPADS) since February 2012. I received a Ph.D degree (2011) from the Fudan University, under the guidance of Prof. Binyu Zang. My research interests include operating systems, parallel and distributed systems, and hardware-software co-design, with a current focus on building high-performance, scalable, and working systems. My work has been recognized by Best Paper Award from EuroSys (2024 and 2015), ICPP (2007), and APSys (2017), as well as Huawei OlympusMons Pioneer Award (2020).

I am currently looking for self-motivated students with good background on systems related area. Drop me an E-mail if you have interests to work with me.
