Shixiong Qi’s Homepage

I am a PhD student under the supervision of K. K. Ramakrishnan in the Department of Computer Science at the University of California, Riverside. My research interest encompasses a broad range of cloud and networked systems, going into the application interface with the operating system and network stack, and investigating the ways to enhance modern cloud-based applications. The common theme of my research is to make networked systems faster, more reliable, more efficient, and lately, more secure. Specifically, my work includes contributions to high-performance Network Function Virtualization (NFV), Middlebox, 5G and beyond mobile networks, and serverless computing.
