Hi, I am Zhiqiang, a second year Computer Science Ph.D. student at Stanford University.

My research aims to improve observability and efficiency of Computer Systems with a focus on Cloud Computing and Machine Learning Systems. Currently, I am part of the Stanford Platform Lab, where I am advised by Prof. Christos Kozyrakis.

Prior to joining Stanford, I obtained my master’s and bachelor’s degrees at ShanghaiTech University and had a great time interning in the Cloud Software System Group at Max Planck Institute for Software Systems (MPI-SWS), the Systems and Networking Research Group at Microsoft Research Asia and the DGL team at AWS Shanghai AI Lab.



Jun, 2023 I will join Microsoft Research Cloud Reliability Group this summer as a research intern, happy to meet up if you are around!
Apr, 2023 Madrona was accepted to SIGGRAPH ‘23! Join us to discover how to scale out your reinforcement training by orders of magnitude.
Jul, 2022 Hindsight was accepted to NSDI ‘23! We are preparing an artifact for this novel edge-case tracing system, stay tuned : )
Jun, 2022 We will present our vision on applying distributed tracing to energy consumption modeling at HotCarbon ‘22, a workshop co-hosted with OSDI this year. Jump in the discussion if you are interested in!
Apr, 2022 I decided to join Stanford University to pursue my Ph.D. in this fall! Consider to reach out to me if you are around :wink:
