I am a Visiting Faculty Scholar in the Discrete Algorithm Group at Google Research, working with Badih Ghazi and Ravi Kumar. Before that, I was a postdoctoral associate within the Department of Computer Science at Duke University, co-supervised by Prof. Pankaj Agarwal and Prof. Jun Yang. I also work with Debmalya Panigrahi and Sudeepa Roy. I received my Ph.D. from the Department of Computer Science and Technology at HKUST in August 2019, under the supervision of Prof. Ke Yi. During Feb 2019 to May 2019, I was a visiting scholar in the Department of Computer Sciences at the University of Wisconsin Madison and worked with Paris Koutris. Prior to that, I received my Bachelor Degree of Engineering from the School of Software at Tsinghua University in 2014.

Research Interest

My research interest lies in the intersection of the theory and practice of data management, spanning various areas: data processing for massively parallel systems, dynamic query processing, differential privacy in query processing, and machine learning in query optimization.
