My Headshot

Get in touch yichencs at umich.edu


My research interest spans broadly in computer systems, including operating systems and distributed systems. My research focuses on building more robust and reliable systems.

I obtained my B.E. degree in Computer Science and Technology from Zhejiang University in June 2023. My graduation thesis was advised by Prof. Zeke Wang. During my undergraduate years, I worked remotely with Prof. Mengjia Yan and Mengyuan Li at MIT on trusted execution environments (TEE). I also worked in ArcLab at Zhejiang University, mainly focusing on the research of hardware-software co-design. Moreover, I was the leader of ZJUSCT during the 2022-2023 academic year, actively participating in international student cluster competitions and providing public services (e.g. ZJU Mirror and ZJU Git).

When I'm not in front of a computer screen, I enjoy playing badminton, watching {soccer (esp. FC Bayern Munich), Formula 1, Formula E} games, and traveling.
