I am a Senior Research Scientist at Meta responsible for its Data Center routing solutions, including but not limited to Software-Defined Networks and BGP. Before joining Meta, I obtained my PhD in Computer Science at the University of Michigan, advised by Professor Morley Mao. I received my B.Eng. in Communication Engineering from Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications(BUPT). I am also fortunate to have spent a year and a half at Tsinghua University working with Professor Jun Bi (RIP) on Software-Defined Networks research.

I am generally interested in networking and computer systems. My research focuses on designing and implementing novel architectures, abstractions, and interfaces for Software-Defined Networks(SDN).
