I am looking for self-motivated undergraduate, master, and Ph.D. students who are strongly committed to research. If you are interested in persistent memory, storage technologies, and system software, feel free to send me your CV.



About me

I am a Tenure-track Assistant Professor in the DDST Lab at Shanghai Jiao Tong University University (SJTU). I received my Ph.D. (advised by Prof. Hong Mei and Prof. Linpeng Huang) and B.E. degrees from Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 2019 and 2014. During 2017 - 2018, I worked as a visiting scholar in Non-Volatile Systems Laboratory (NVSL) at University of California, San Diego (UCSD), advised by Prof. Steven Swanson. During 2019 - 2021, I worked as a postdoc researcher in Storage Research Group at Tsinghua University, advised by Prof. Jiwu Shu. My research interests include persistent memory, distributed systems, and storage systems.
