I'm a PhD student at CS department of Rice University, advised by Prof. Ang Chen (starting from 2018 fall). I received my BS and MS degrees from Beihang University in 2014 and 2017, respectively. Before joining Rice, I was an OS kernel developer in VMware Inc. from 2017.1 to 2018.6.

I am interested in network systems, operating systems, and their security. My current focus is the security implications of programmable data planes.

On Life

I'm married to Siyu Xie in July, 2018.

I do a lot of sports - my favoriate is full-court (5 vs. 5) basketball games. I like shooting threes in transitions. My favoriate NBA player is Stephen Curry. I also like our local team Houston Rockets but I'm not a huge fan of it...
