I have graduated and I'm now a senior research scientist at Datavisor. Before joining Datavisor, I was a researcher at NEC Labs America. My research interests mainly lie in building data management systems for big data analytics, low-latency analytics, and machine learning.

I was a Ph.D. student in the School of Computer Science at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. I was a member of the Database and Information Management Lab. My advisor was Prof. Yanlei Diao. I worked on the SCALLA project.
