I am a 6th year Computer Science PhD stduent in
UC San Diego (UCSD). My advisors are Alin Deutsch and Victor Vianu.
I am currently working on verification of data-driven workflows, a research direction that lies in the intersection of Database Theory, Software Model Checking and Business Process Management.
Recently, I am also interested in high-level specification languages and automatic verification for smart contracts and Blockchain.
Before joining UCSD, I obtained my undergradate degree in Computer Science from Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. During my undergraduate, I was also interested in Data Mining.
I was an intern in
Google Research during 2013 Summer and in Microsoft Research during 2014 Summer.
I was an intern in IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center during 2017 Summer.
