News and Opportunities:
As of Fall 2015, I moved to Hanyang University in Seoul, South Korea. My main research focus is on scalable software architecture on cutting-edge hardware (i.e., multicores and non-volatile memory). Topics include operating systems, distributed systems, high-performance database systems, etc. Prior to joining Hanyang University, I was one of founding members of Amazon Aurora database kernel development team.
I am currently looking for graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and undergraduate students. Feel free to contact me if you have the right skills and relevant interests on any of research topics above.
*** For those who seek undergraduate intern positions, I strongly recommend you to take “Algorithms & Data Structures” and “Operating Systems” prior to contacting me. Taking “Multicore Programming” is a big plus to undertake a research project in our lab, since it would take enormous time and effort to design concurrent data structures & algorithms while learning the subject without having relevant knowledge.
* A list of very competitive top conferences we are aiming at :
The biennial ACM Symposium on Operating Systems Principles (SOSP)
The biennial USENIX Symposium on Operating Systems Design and Implementation (OSDI)
The annual ACM Special Interest Group on Management of Data Conference (SIGMOD)
The annual International Conference on Very Large Data Bases (VLDB)
