Kai Wu   (Kyle)

I am a researcher at ByteDance Infrastructure System Lab. My research interests mainly focus on Systems, Heterogeneous computing and High performance computing. Before joining ByteDance, I received my Ph.D. from University of California Merced, working with Prof. Dong Li on building efficient and scalable system supports for persistent memory-based big memory platforms.
