I'm currently a senior principal research manager at Microsoft Research Asia (MSRA). I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science and Technology from Tsinghua University in 2015 and B.S. degrees in Software Engineering from Beihang University in 2010. I was as a visiting student in UCLA from September 2013 to September 2014. In 2015, I joined MSRA.

Please feel free to send me an email if you are interested in a full-time research position, internship, or visiting researcher role in MSRA Vancouver lab.

My research interests are in the broad areas of systems and networking, cloud and AI infrastructure, and AI. My recent work is mainly focusing on:

  • Artifical Specialized Intelligence

  • AI for Systems and Networking

  • AI for Cloud and AI Infrastructure
