Hello! I’m Yizhou Shan, a Ph.D. student at University of California San Diego, CSE, advised by Prof. Yiying Zhang. I am a member of UCSD Wuklab and UCSD SysNet. I was a Purdue Boilermaker during 2016-2019. You can find my CV here.

During my doctoral research, I have been working on distributed system, networking, operating system, hardware (FPGA), and their intersections. My most recent research focus is on disaggregated datacenter, designing its hardware, OS, and upper layer applications.
As of now, I’m working on network design for disaggregated datacenters. End of the day, many of the system problems boil down to network problems. :)
