Software Engineer, R&D Compiler Infrastructure

ByteDance Inc.


My research focuses on Programming Systems, especially for mobile applications and develops runtime systems, program analysis and tools, to automatically detect, prevent, and fix reliability and efficiency issues. In addition, I have a keen interest in exploiting the synergy between software engineering and emerging techniques (in Big Data and DeepLearning) to address issues in both research areas. I joined Compiler Infrastructure team at ByteDance Inc. after completing my Ph.D. in Computer Science & Engineering at University of California Riverside(UCR), where I was advised by Dr. Zhijia Zhao.

My research has been recognized with a Best Paper Runner-up Award @ MobiSys'18 and ACM SIGMOBILE Research Highlights (2018).
