I am currently a Ph.D. candidate at School of Engineering, University of British Columbia, supervised by Prof. Chen Feng, who is the co-cluster lead of Blockchain@UBC. I also work closely with Prof. Ivan Beschastnikh. My research interests lie in distributed systems, especially blockchain systems. Most recently, I have been focusing on building scalable BFT-based blockchain systems.
