Scofield Z.Q. Liu


I am a 1st-year Ph.D. student at Large-Scale Data & Systems Group of Imperial College London, advised by amazing Prof. Marios Kogias.

Prior to joining Imperial πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§, I was fortunate to work with Prof. Marc Shapiro (the inventor of Proxy and CRDTs), during which we revisited distributed abstractions for modern query processing systems. I finished my master thesis at Max-Planck Institute for Informatics (MPI-INF) πŸ‡©πŸ‡ͺ with Prof. Yiting Xia, where we built optical datacenter networks using state-of-the-art programmable switches and SmartNICs. My very first research project, reproducing a failure-reroute protocol using P4, was supervised by Dr. Romain Jacob in Networked System Group (ETHz) πŸ‡¨πŸ‡­, led by Prof. Laurent Vanbever. I obtained M.S. (with distinction) from Γ‰cole Polytechnique (France) πŸ‡¨πŸ‡΅.

My research interests lie in Computer Systems and Networking, with a focus on data center systems, in-network compute, and concurrent programming.
