I'm Wenqing, a second year M.S. student in the Department of Computer Science at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I am co-advised by Prof. Tianyin Xu, Prof. Aishwarya Ganesan, and Prof. Ramnatthan Alagappan. I got my bachelor degree from the joint institute of Zhejiang University - University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, major in Computer Engineering.
I was working on the Sieve project during the past year, which systematically tests Kubernetes operators to harden them against scenarios like asynchrony, unexpected failures, networking issues, and controller restarts. So far, our project has already discovered (and led to fixes for) more than 30 safety-critical bugs in popular Kubernetes controllers for Zookeeper, Cassandra, RabbitMQ, MongoDB, XtraDB, etc. The Sieve paper was accepted to OSDI'22!
I love open-source, and enjoy the process of building something that can benefit many others' lives. I'm also a contributor of VSCode and FireFox. If you are using them, you are running some code written by me :)
