    Minlan Yu
    I am an assistant professor in the Computer Science Department at University of Southern Califonia. I co-lead the Networked Systems Lab with Ramesh Govindan and Ethan Katz-Bassett. I am interested in data networking, distributed systems, enterprise and data center networks, network virtualization, and software-defined networking.
    I received my Ph.D. from Princeton University in August 2011, advised by Jennifer Rexford. After that, I was a postdoctoral scholar working with Ion Stoica at UC Berkeley for one year.
