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


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.


Currently at Rice University, I have changed my reserach area to Computer Networks. I am now working with Prof. T. S. Eugene Ng in System Group of Department of Computer Science. We are now delving into the problems in Software-Defined Networking (SDN). However, my research interests broadly cover the areas of SDN, Data Center Networks and Cloud Computing.


For those guys who keep asking me the 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 pretty like to join any activity, such as picnic, seminar and defense, from both departments. Delicious free food is always welcomed from any department.
