I am a Researcher in Microsoft Research Asia (Shanghai). I obtained Ph.D. degree from The University of Hong Kong (HKU) in 2020, advised by Prof. Francis C.M. Lau. Before that, I obtained B.Eng in Electronic and Information Engineering from University of Electronic Science and Technology of China in 2014. My research interests are resource management, systems for machine learning, and cloud computing.
