Zhaoguo Wang (王肇国)

(Tenure-Track) Associate Professor

Institute of Parallel and Distributed Systems

About Me

I am an associate professor in the Software School, Shanghai Jiao Tong University since March 2018. Before joining SJTU, I was an assistant professor (non-tenure track) at New York University. My research goal is to improve storage systems (e.g., database) on the aspects of theories and system architectures.


My current research includes the fields of availability, synchronization, and indexing for the storage systems.

  • Consensus Protocol.
    • [PODC'19] On the parallels between Paxos and Raft. [PODC'19] [To appear]
  • Concurrency Control.
    • [Usenix ATC'19] Janus: A Scalable and Efficient Persistent Transactional Memory. [To appear]
    • [APSys'17] Extracting More Intra-transaction Parallelism with Work Stealing for OLTP Workloads. (Best Paper Award) [pdf]
    • [TOCS'17] Fast In-memory Transaction Processing using RDMA and HTM. [pdf]
    • [SIGMOD'16] Scaling Multicore Databases via Constrained Parallel Execution. [pdf]
    • [CAL'15] Persistent Transactional Memory. [pdf]
    • [EuroSys'14] Using Restricted Transactional Memory to Build a Scalable In-Memory Database. [pdf]
  • Data Structure.
    • [PPoPP'17, TPDS'18] Eunomia: Scaling Concurrent Search Trees under Contention Using HTM. [pdf],[journal version]
    • [APSys'13] Opportunities and pitfalls of multi-core scaling using Hardware Transaction Memory. [pdf]

Besides, some of my old projects also involve building system emulator (COREMU PPoPP'11, sourceforge), and distributed machine learning systems (Spartan, Usenix ATC'15). My full publication list is available at google scholar.
