I am a Ph.D. candidate at Department of Computer Science and Engineering, University of Minnesota - Twin Cities (August 2012 - now). I am a member of the Center for Research in Intelligent Storage (CRIS). My advisor is Dr. David H.C. Du. My current research interests include non-volatile memory (e.g. PCM, SSD), key-value store, data deduplication, and high-performance computing. Before joining UMN, I obtained my B.E. degree in Software Engineering from Dalian University of Technology, China (August 2008 - June 2012).
