  • Performance Improvement. Performed network performance benchmarking with tools like Apache Http Server and iperf, and developed benchmarking tools to evaluate the network card's raw socket send and receive capabilities. Made modifications to the Network Protocol Stack and its interface with Arceos to enhance network bandwidth.
  • NIC driver. Wrote a driver for the Intel 82599 network interface card with Rust programming language. Referred to DPDK for performance optimization and integrated it as a crate into Arceos. Run successfully real-world applications such as httpserver, iperf, and Redis on an AMD machines.
  • Type-2 hypervisor based arceos. Developed a type-2 hypervisor based on Arceos which be capable of booting Linux.

Active Projects


TiledCUDA is a kernel template library that is designed to be highly efficient. It provides a wrapper for cutlass CuTe to simplifly the process of implementing complex fused kernels that utilize tensor core GEMM.


ThrillerFlow is a Dataflow Analysis and Codegen Framework written in Rust. It has the following features:

  • Dataflow Analysis based on Memory Hierarchy Graph.
  • Loop Analysis based on Polyhedral Model.
  • Codegen based on TiledCUDA(An Efficient Kernel Template Library written in CuTe).



rCore-OS/arceos: An experimental modular OS written in Rust.
Arceos is a unikernel developed by the rCore-OS community at Tsinghua University.
  • I integrated hypercraft into arceos, enabling it to be launched as a type-2 hypervisor.
  • I added interrupt support to arceos and implemented IO interrupts based on virtio-net and virtio-blk.
  • I implemented ixgbe NIC driver for arceos and did performance optimizations in driver layer and network stack layer.
xv6-rust: Reimplementation of xv6-riscv in the Rust language.

A Unix-like operating system implemented by pure rust. This project is a reimplementation of xv6-riscv. Besides, it do some optimizations to the origin system such as memory allocation and file system. This project also serves as the reference implementation for OSCOMP Project 4 You can find more information abot this project in documents.

hypercraft: a VMM crate written in Rust.

Hypercraft is a VMM(Virtual Machine Monitor) crate written in Rust. Currently, hypercraft is integrated as a crate into rcore-os/arceos and can be launched as a type-2 hypervisor and be capable of booting Linux.

hypocaust-2: A hardware-assisted virtualization RISC-V hypervisor using H extensions.

Hypocaust-2 implements SBI call processing, two-stage page table translation, interrupt emulation and forwarding and exception forwarding, passthrough or emulation of some peripherals. Currently hypocaust-2 can boot & run rCore-Tutorial-v3, rt-thread and mainline Linux, expecting to expande to multi-core & multi-guest.

hypocaust: a S-mode trap and emulate type-1 hypervisor run on RISC-V machine.

Hypocaust implements privilege-level instruction emulation (CSR-related and SFECE VMA), construction of shadow page tables, synchronization of guest page tables and shadow page tables, forwarding of interrupts and exceptions, emulation of clocks and virtio block devices, and can currently run minikernel.
