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 Vice Dean of Computer School, and 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.
