I am a Ph.D. student in the Electrical & Computer Engineering Department at University of Toronto, under the supervision of Professor Ding Yuan.
My research interests are in building automatic tools to enhance software logging and diagnose software failures.
My current work focuses on the automated placement of log printing statements and non-intrusive performance profiling for distributed systems.

Before coming to Toronto, I spent one year in the System Research Group at Microsoft Research Asia and got my B.E. from Tsinghua University in 2013.
I was awarded the Facebook Fellowship 2018-2019.

I will be joining Facebook at the Menlo Park in 2020.




I am also interested in East and Inner Asia culture and history.
