I'm Lei Zhang, a 4th year computer science PhD student in Department of Computer Science , Emory University , advised by Prof. Ymir Vigfusson. My research interest is on distributed systems, operating systems and storage systems. Generally, I love to find out real world problems on distributed memory, cache, or storage, and build smart systems to solve them.

I got my bachelor degree from Department of Computer Science and Technology, Tsinghua University. I was once a PhD student at Georgia Tech, working with Prof. Karsten Schwan (passed away at 2015) and Prof. Doug Blough.
