Hi, I am Zhiqiang, an incoming Ph.D. student at Stanford University.

I am currently a research intern at Max Planck Institute for Software Systems (MPI-SWS) working with Prof. Jonathan Mace, Prof. Antoine Kaufmann and Prof. Yiting Xia. I obtained my master’s and bachelor’s degrees at ShanghaiTech University, advised by Prof. Rui Fan.

Before I came to Germany, I had a great time interning in the Systems and Networking Research Group at Microsoft Research Asia and in the DGL team at AWS Shanghai AI Lab.

My research interests lie in Computer Systems and Networking with a focus on Cloud Computing, Machine Learning Systems and Hardware/Software Co-Design.



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:
Jan, 2022 Graphiler was accepted to MLSys ‘22! It enriches data flow graphs to enable up to two orders of magnitude of acceleration for graph neural networks. I will present Graphiler at the conference in late August. Don’t hesitate to drop by if you will attend as well.
Mar, 2021 Dual-side Sparse Tensor Core was accepted to ISCA ‘21.
Aug, 2020 Rammer was accepted to OSDI ‘20!
