I am a Master of Science (MSc) student in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, where I am advised by Dr. Jianping Pan. In 2017, I obtained a Bachelor of Engineering in Computer Science and Technology from Zhejiang Gongshang University in China. Since then, I spent four years working as a backend software engineer in startup companies in Shanghai and Hangzhou. Previously, I conducted research on image processing during my undergraduate study. My current research interests are concentrated on computer networking applications, including adaptive video streaming and new protocols like multipath QUIC.
