Yuanli Wang (王远立)

I'm a Ph.D. student at Complex Analytics & Scalable Processing (CASP) Research Lab at Boston University, and I am working with Vasiliki (Vasia) Kalavri.

My research interests are broadly in computer system, database and network. My current works are focusing on building self-managed stream processing system.

Previously, I obtained my master's degree from University of Minnesota.
