I am Xiaoye Steven Sun, a fifth year Ph.D. student in Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of Rice University.


I joined Rice University in 2011 Fall. I am working with Prof. T. S. Eugene Ng in System Group of Department of Computer Science. My research interests include cloud computing, big data systems, software-defined networks.


Before I came to Rice, I got my Bachelor of Engineering Degree from Tsinghua University, China in June 2011. At Tsinghua, the top university in China, I was in Department of Electronic Engineering under School of Information Science and Technology. I worked with Prof. Zhijun Zhang and Prof. Wenhua Chen in my undergraduate research projects. I did research on antennas and microwave circuits design.


For those guys who keep asking me questions like "are you a CS student", "did your transfer to CS from ECE", "how to transfer to CS department" and etc., I'd like to say that technically I am an ECE student working with a CS professor. I'd like to join any activity, such as picnic, seminar and defense, from both departments. Delicious free food is always welcomed from any department.
