Name:Minjia Zhang

I am at Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio, USA. My research interests span multiple layers of the stack. I am particularly interested in efficient runtime-system, parallel programming, and synchronization techniques.

Right now I am looking at VM support for practical software transactional memory systems, as well as exploiting asynchrony for multi-threading runtime supports.

Prior to working on runtime systems, my projects have also included improving throughput and latency for key-value store solutions such as memcached with InfiniBand. I have also worked on OS virtual machine XEN to support fault tolerance. I completed my Bachelor and Master degree at Huazhong University of Science and Technology, China.
