I am Rui, currently a PhD student at the Department of Computer Science at the University of Chicago (UChicago), advised by Prof. Michael J. Franklin and Prof. Aaron J. Elmore. I also work closely with Prof. Sanjay Krishnan. My research centers on building systems for machine learning, currently focuses on building efficient training systems for machine learning in resource-constrained and shared environments.
Before my PhD journey, my research included building systems for blockchain, data cleaning, mobile computing, and ubiquitous computing. I was a research assistant at the Department of Computer Science at the National University of Singapore (NUS), working with Prof. Beng Chin Ooi and a research assistant at the Department of Information Engineering at Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), working with Prof. Kehuan Zhang. I received my M.Phil degree in computer science from The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU), advised by Prof. Jiannong Cao, and got my B.Eng degree at Northeastern University of China (NEU).
