I am a PhD Candidate in Computer and Information Science at Penn. I have been working as the Research Assistant in the Compositional Scheduling Analsyis Project in the PRECISE lab since Feb. 2012. 
I received the Master of Scinece in Engineering in Computer and Information Science at University of Pennsylvania in May 2013 and the Bachelor in Software Engineering at Northwestern Polytechnical University in July 2011.
I was the Teaching Assistant in the CIS553/TCOM512 Networked Systems Course at Penn in the 2013 spring semester.

Please refer to my Resume for more details about me.

Research Interests:

Cyber Physical Systems; Real Time Systems; Virtualization; Embedded Systems; 

Currently, I am the main maintainer for the CARTS tool and the second maintainer for the RT-Xen project

CARTS tool is a compositional analysis tool for real time system.

RT-Xen is a real time virtualization system that can be used as a test bed for hierarchical scheduling.

I like playing badminton. I was in our college badminton team for four years in undergraduate. Now I usually play badminton once or twice a week. 
I also like other sports, e.g., table tennis and tennis.
