Research Interests (Wordle)

My main research interests are in systems areas, focusing on storage systems, databases, and data-intensive applications. My research covers a broad scope from optimizing cache and memory management in OS kernel, creating high-speed flash and disk based storage, enhancing user experience on cloud storage, to improving power efficiency for mobile and small-form-factor devices. Despite the diversity of these studies, there is a core common theme—They are all about data, the new "gold" in this digital era. My more recent interests are in key-value cache and NoSQL databases, system performance auto-tuning, and data reliability.
