About Me

Hi there!👋 I’m a fourth-year undergraduate (looking for a Systems Ph.D. position) of computer science at WHU in the group of Prof. Yanjiao Chen. Currently, I serve as a research intern at NUS working with Prof. Ben Leong. My research revolves around computer networks, with interests in applying solid or novel algorithms to manage networked systems and services. Some strategic locations on the 📡 map of the currently discovered battlefield: Congestion Control, Microservice Architecture, and Dietary Detection.

None of us is as smart as all of us. If you have any ideas, please contact me.
