I am a PhD candidate at Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Northeastern University. My advisor is Prof. Ningfang Mi. I received my M.Eng. degree in Computer Science from Southeast University in 2010, and B.Eng. degree in Computer Science and Engineering from Southeast University in 2007.
I am a member of the Northeastern University Computer Systems Research Laboratory (NUCSRL). My research interests include resource management, scheduling policy, performance evaluation, system modeling, simulation and cloud computing. I am currently working on resource management in Hadoop cluster and workload consolidation policies for virtual machine management.
