Biography


Pengfei Zuo is currently a research scientist at Huawei Cloud. He received his Ph.D. degree (advised by Prof. Yu Hua) in Computer Science from Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST) in 2019, and was a visiting PhD student (advised by Prof. Yuan Xie) at the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) during 2018-2019. He received a B.E. degree in Computer Science from HUST in 2014.

He has published 30+ refereed papers in major conferences and journals (OSDI, MICRO, ASPLOS, FAST, USENIX ATC, VLDB, DAC, etc) in the areas of computer system and architecture, with a focus on memory systems, storage systems and techniques, and security. He obtained the 2020 ACM China Doctoral Dissertation Award (only two awardees among all computer disciplines across China every year).

He served as a PC member at multiple conferences including ICDCS 2021, Cloud 2021, ICPADS 2020, etc, and a reviewer for multiple journals including TPDS, TC, TOS, TDSC, etc.
