Yuanli Wang

I am a computer science master student at University of Minnesota. My research interests are in database and distributed systems.

Before I came to UMN, I obtained my bachelor's degree in Computer Science at Hefei University of Technology.

I will join Complex Analytics & Scalable Processing (CASP) Research Lab at Boston University as a PhD student this fall!
