Welcome to my modest corner of the web! My name is Ze-Yuan Hu (胡泽远 in Chinese) 1. I'm a second year master student at the University of Texas at Austin. In the past, I worked on in-house High-Performance Computing (HPC) engine at Schlumberger and spent two years working as a software engineer on Db2 for Linux, UNIX and Windows at IBM.
I'm interested in storage. In particular, I'm interested in building reliable storage system that can best use of underlying hardware and the distributed storage system with emphasis on performance and security. Also, I have a side interest in human language, which usually leads to NLP. You can find more about me on my LinkedIn page, resume, CV, StackOverflow, and Google Scholar.
When I'm free, I enjoy carrying out some min research projects on some niche topics in computer science and write them down here. I also write random non-technical things there. Besides writings, I like cooking (e.g., traditional Beijing dish), singing, and curling. I also find myself digging the question on how political system and religion (e.g. Christianity and Buddhism) impact social organization and people's way of thinking.
I am contactable via. my personal email address ferrishu3886 [AT] gmail [DOT] com and am on twitter as @zeyuanhu.
