I am Yankai Jiang, a first year Computer Engineering PhD student in Northeastern University, advised by Prof. Devesh Tiwari. I'm part of the Goodwill Lab. Currently, my research focusses on serverless computing, LLM and HPC.

Previously I obtained my M.S. in Computer Engineering from Northwestern University in 2023, where I was fortunate to work with Prof. Peter Dinda in Prescience Lab, Prof. Xinyu Xing and Prof. Yueqi Chen in Northwestern S&P Group. Prior to that, I graduated from Xi'an Jiaotong University with B.E. in Automation. Also, I was a student from Special Class for the Gifted Young.
