Tiancheng Xu

Hi :) I am Tiancheng Xu, a 2nd-year Ph.D. student at Rice CS, working with Prof. Scott Rixner and Prof. Alan Cox.

Prior to Rice, I spent two wonderful years at University of Rochester CS (M.S.). I had great fun working with Dr. Yuhao Zhu, and I was fortunate to be instructed by Dr. Sreepathi Pai. I completed my undergrad study in IoT at Huazhong University of Science and Technology. During my senior year, I worked with Dr. Xin Yang and Dr. Hien Nguyen Van.
