Research is about trying different approaches and approaching it differently at the end.

Welcome! I'm currently a PhD Candidate in University of Minnesota - Twin Cities, working with Prof. Zhi-Li Zhang. My research interest lies in Computer Networks, including content delivery systems, data center networks, and traffic measurement. Here is our Networking Research Lab. In the meantime, I also work for Microsoft, mainly focusing on building and measuring content delivery systems.
I obtained my bachelor's degree from Electrical Engineering Department in 2005 and master's degree from Information Security Department in 2008, both in Shanghai Jiaotong University. During my master's study, my focus was also on networking, mainly on network routing related area. My hometown is in Shanghai, which is said to be the New York of China.

★ ACM Committee on Women in Computing, March 17, 2010
ACM-W's mission is to celebrate, inform and support women in computing, and work with the ACM-W community of computer scientists, educators, employers and policy makers to improve working and learning environments for women. This includes promoting activities that result in more equal representation of women in CS such as mentoring or role modeling; monitoring the status of women in industrial and academic computing through the gathering of statistics; providing historical information about women's accomplishments and roles in CS; and serving as a repository of information about programs, documents and policies of concern to women in CS.
Through international and local activities and chapters, educational outreach, recognition of leading women in CS, cooperation with other organizations, and the dissemination of information via newsletters, blogs, and reports, ACM-W promotes the growth and development of women seeking to attain careers in computing.
★ Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing, Atlanta, Georgia, September 28 - October 2, 2010
The Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing is a series of conferences designed to bring the research and career interests of women in computing to the forefront. Presenters are leaders in their respective fields, representing industrial, academic and government communities. Leading researchers present their current work, while special sessions focus on the role of women in today's technology fields, including computer science, information technology, research and engineering.
Past Grace Hopper Celebrations have resulted in collaborative proposals, networking, mentoring, and increased visibility for the contributions of women in computing.
