Hey, I am Ziming! I am a senior at Yale College, double major in Computer Science and Philosophy.

I am advised by Prof. Anurag Khandelwal, Prof. Dragomir Radev at Yale, and Prof. Rashmi Vinayak at CMU. I am fortunate to work with collaborators from Microsoft Research, NetApp, Facebook AI, Salesforce Research, and Twitter. I was awarded 2023 Outstanding Undergraduate Researcher Award Runner-Up.


I am broadly interested in networked systems and machine learning systems.
