I am a Ph.D. student in the Database Group of the Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Washington, where I am fortunate to be advised by Prof. Magdalena Balazinska. I also work closely with Prof. Ranjay Krishna and Prof. Alex Ratner.
My research focuses on the intersection of data management systems and machine learning. As machine learning continues to place immense computational demands, substantial investments have been made in both hardware and software infrastructure. Nevertheless, data management is increasingly becoming a bottleneck for numerous machine learning tasks. At the same time, DBMS builders are struggling to effectively leverage the exciting capabilities offered by machine learning infrastructure. My research aims to bring the two worlds together by designing novel data management systems for machine learning workloads and incorporating ML infrastructure into DBMS architectures.
Before UW, I obtained a Bachelor of Science (Honors) in Computer Science at Fudan University, where I worked with Prof. Yang Chen. I also worked with Prof. Chenren Xu at Peking University. In my younger years, I was a contestant in the Olympiad in Informatics and ACM-ICPC.
