About me (CV)

I am now an assistant professor in the College of Software, Nankai University. I am doing research on failure detection, diagnosis and prediction in datacenter networks now. Before joining Nankai, I got my Ph. D. in the Department of Computer Science and Technology at Tsinghua University, and I was awarded “Outstanding Doctoral Dissertation of Tsinghua University”. My advisers were Professor Dan Pei and Professor Ying Liu. During January 2016 to May 2016, I went to School of Computer Science, Georgia Institute of Technology as a visiting scholar, supervised by Professor Jun (Jim) Xu. Before coming to Tsinghua University, I attended Xidian University and received my B.S. in Network Engineering in 2012. I did my internship in Baidu, one of the largest search engines in the world, from January 2014 to April 2017.
