I am an Assistant Professor (with tenure) in the HPDC group in the Computer Systems section of the Department of Computer Science at VU Amsterdam, The Netherlands. I am generally interested in distributed systems and networking. Currently, my research is focused on data center in-network computing and machine learning systems. I am the recipient of a Google Research Scholar Award (2022) and an Athene Young Investigator Award of TU Darmstadt (2018). I am a Senior Member of IEEE and a Member of ACM.

At VU Amsterdam, I am the coordinator of the MSc Computer Science (joint degree VU/UvA) track Internet and Web Technology and a member of the program committee for BSc Computer Science.

I am always looking for motivated students to join my research projects. If you are curious about how to build next-generation data centers and how to deploy modern applications powered by machine learning on them efficiently, send me an email!

I obtained my PhD in computer science with distinction from the Institute of Computing Technology (ICT), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). During Sep 2012 - Jan 2014, I was a visiting researcher at IMDEA Networks Institute, Spain.
