I’m a first year Ph.D. student studying Computer Science at Brown University, advised by Nikos Vasilakis. I received my master degree from Boston University and my undergraduate degree from Chinese University of Hong Kong, Shenzhen. I was also a Production Engineer intern in the Kernel Team at Meta during summer 2022.

Broadly, my research interests are interpretability and fairness in computer systems. I enjoy working on system/software/automation hybrid space either improving the underlying systems to achieve higher scalability & performance & security, or offering system support for various applications. Currently I’m working on microservice causal profiling and Pash serverless extension.
