Lei Yan


I’m a PhD student at EPFL working with George Candea and Sanidhya Kashyap.

My research interests lie in designing abstractions and tools that simplify the development of concurrent systems software. I focus currently on abstractions for transparent parallelization and worked a bit on tools for debugging concurrency bugs.

I enjoy hacking low-level stuff and hunting down tricky bugs (unless a few days before deadlines…). I also like geography and play Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020.
