👩🏻‍💻 About Me

I am an assistant professor and I am part of the Cake Lab in the Computer Science Department at the Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI). I am a system builder. My research is about modeling system behaviors, especially these of large scale systems, and to build prototypes that help to empirically evaluate system's behaviors.

Broadly, I am interested in designing systems to handle new trade-offs in cost, performance and efficiency. Specially, I have worked on research projects, in the context of distributed systems and cloud computing, that automate cloud resource management tasks, improve distributed application performance and provide new system abstractions. For an update-to-date list of ongoing research projects, please visit our lab website.

I completed my Ph.D. at the University of Massachusetts Amherst advised by Prof. Prashant Shenoy. Before that, I received my B.E. from Nanjing University and was an exchange student at National Cheng Kung University.
