About Me

I am a professor in Computer School, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, where I work with members of the system group in SCTS/CGCL. Meantime, I am served as the director of Parallel and Distributed Computing Institute, with the research interests about cloud computing, system virtualization, datacenter management, storage system, in-memory computing and so on. I received a Ph.D degree in computer science from Huazhong University of Science and Technology in 2003.

I am currently looking for self-motivated students with good background on systems related area. Drop me an E-mail if you have interests to work with me.
