I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Computer and Information Science department at the University of Pennsylvania (Penn) working with Prof. Boon Thau Loo. At Penn, I am a member of the NetDB research group, distributed systems lab, and database group. Before joining Penn, I received my PhD in Computer Science at the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) under the supervision of Prof. Divyakant Agrawal and Prof. Amr El Abbadi. My research mainly lies at the intersection of data management and distributed systems, focusing on distributed transaction processing, consensus protocols, and blockchains.
10.2022 - I Gave a talk on Towards Regulating Large-Scale Multi-Enterprise Environments with Privacy Guarantees at HPTS 2022.
08.2021 - Our proposal, Towards Internet-scale Permissioned Blockchain Infrastructure for the Mobile Internet, funded by NSF.
02.2021 - I serve as Demo and Workshops Local Arrangements chair of ACM SIGMOD 2022
02.2021 - We present a tutorial on Permissioned Blockchains: Properties, Techniques and Applications at SIGMOD 2021.
06.2020 - I graduated from UC Santa Barbara.
11.2019 - We present a tutorial on Modern Large-Scale Data Management Systems after 40 Years of Consensus at ICDE 2020.
01.2019 - We present a tutorial on Database and Distributed Computing Foundations of Blockchains at SIGMOD 2019.
