Irene Y. Zhang

Ph. D. student - Computer Science & Engineering University of Washington

I work with Hank Levy and Arvind Krishnamurthy in the Computer Systems Lab. My current research focuses on systems for large-scale, distributed applications, including distributed runtime systems and transactional storage systems.

Before starting my PhD, I worked for three years at VMware in the virtual machine monitor group. I received my S.B. in computer science from MIT in 2008 and my M. Eng. in 2009.

I was born in Beijing, China and spent most of my time growing up in Columbus, Indiana. My husband and I like to cook, travel and occasionally do computer science together.
