Shuai Mu

I am an assistant professor of Computer Science at Stony Brook University, starting from 2019 spring. My main research interests are in distributed systems and operating systems. I am currently recruiting PhD/MS students. If you are interested, drop me an email with a brief resume.

Prior to joining Stony Brook, I worked 3 years at NYU as a post-doc and a lecturer in the Systems Group. I obtained my Ph.D. from Tsinghua University and B.S. from China Agricultural University. During my graduate studies, I had the luck to be a visiting student at NYU, USC, and University of Sydney. (Full CV)
