I'm a Ph.D. candidate at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, The Chinese University of Hong Kong (advisor: Prof. Eric Lo). I am also a visiting Ph.D. student at the Data Science Research Group, Simon Fraser University (host advisor: Prof. Tianzheng Wang). I earned my bachelor's degree with Outstanding Graduate Award from Shandong University in 2018. Currently, I am working at Microsoft Research Asia Lab as a visiting fellow.

My research interest lies in database management system, specifically next-generation database system on modern hardware. I am a recipient of 2021 ACM SIGMOD Research Highlight Award.

I am on the job market for 2023 fall intake. If you have any openings related to database system, I would love to get in contact!
