Short Biography

Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom. –Aristotle

I am currently a research associate professor in the Department of Computer Science and Technology at Nanjing University. My research interests include Cloud and Big computing systems, efficient Cache/Index systems, Edge systems and etc. I have published over 40 papers in USENIX ATC, ICDE, WWW, VLDBJ, IEEE TPDS, TMC, IPDPS, ICPP, IWQoS, and published a monograph. I received the first prize of Jiangsu Science and Technology Prize in 2018, Tecent Cloud Valuable Professional (TVP) Award in 2021, The first place of the 30st SortBenchmark Competition CloudSort Track (Record Holder). My research results have been adopted by a number of well-known open source software such as Apache Spark, Alluxio, and leading IT/domain companies, including Alibaba, Baidu, Tencent, ByteDance, Huatai Securities, Intel, Sinopec, Weibo and so on. I am the community chair of the Fluid open source project (CNCF Sandbox project), a founding PMC member & maintainer of Alluxio (formly Tachyon) open source project, and also a contributor of Apache Spark project. I am also the co-chair of 15th IEEE iThings, TPC member of SOSP’21 Artifacts、OSDI’22 Artifacts、USENIX ATC’22 Artifacts、EuroSys’22 Artifacts、AAAI’20、IEEE IPDPS’22.
