About me

Hey there

I am Ziming! I am a rising senior at Yale College, pursuing a BS in Computer Science and BA in Philosophy. I am advised by Prof. Anurag Khandelwal, Prof. Dragomir Radev from Yale, and Prof. Rashmi Vinayak from CMU. I am fortunate to work with collaborators from Microsoft Research, NetApp, Facebook AI, Salesforce Research, and Twitter.

I am broadly interested in systems, in particular, storage systems, machine learning systems, and the intersection of theory and systems.
