My name is Sheng Yao. I’m a Computer Science and Engineering Ph.D. student at The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST). I’m advised by Prof. Wei Wang.

Before that, I spent a wonderful gap year as a Research Assistant at Institute of Parallel and Distributed Systems (IPADS) in Shanghai Jiao Tong University, advised by Prof. Zhaoguo Wang.

I enjoyed a three-month research advised by Prof. Cheng Tan from Northeastern University in 2022.

I received my B.S. in Computer Science and Engineering in The Ohio State University. Once a Buckeye, Always a Buckeye.

I have broad research interests in distributed system, system for ML, cloud computing, and other related stuff.
