During summer 1998, I was a research intern at IBM T.J.Watson Research Center in New York. The project I worked on was the Gryphon Project. Gryphon is a new paradigm of distributed computing. It is a content based message broker system which can be used for different kinds of applications. The part of work I did was to design and implement language and algorithms to add states in the system. By adding states, the system is more intelligent and functional. It can deliver new message events based on state information, compress message sequences into a shorter one, or expand any new events as desired. Part of my work is described in a paper published at ICDCS workshop for middleware 1999: Information Flow Based Messaging Middleware for Building Loosely Coupled Distributed Applications(pdf file).
Before going to Utah, I obtained a M.S. from the Ohio State University in 1995. My thesis topic was "A New Computer Simulation Model on the Fluid Flow Systems". My undergraduate degree was obtained in Physics from Peking University , Beijing, China. My B.S. thesis work was published in the Solid State Communiations, 1992.
