Hello,

Welcome to my site. I am a software engineer passionate about many things like machine learning, distributed system, frontend development, engineering system, etc. I currently work at a data team in Microsoft. Living in Seattle WA, I love coffee but not the rain. Hope you enjoy the reading in this site.

My Favorite Topics

Machine learning, distributed system, frontend development, best practice of software engineering, data visualization.
