Yibo Zhu

I am a Senior Research Scientist at ByteDance AI Lab. Before I joined ByteDance, I was a Researcher at Microsoft Research, Redmond.

My research interests are Datacenter Networks and Distributed AI Systems. I work at the intersection of software and hardware, i.e., build large-scale systems using emerging hardware like RDMA and programmable ASICs.

I obtained my Ph.D. from the Department of Computer Science at UCSB. There I worked in SAND Lab, co-advised by Prof. Ben Y. Zhao and Prof. Heather Zheng. I received my bachelor degree from Tsinghua University.

I am a recipient of Microsoft Reasearch Ph.D. Fellowship (2015).
