About me

I’m Wuwen Wang, a first year CS Ph.D. student at Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne(EPFL). I received my master’s degree in Electrical & Computer Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University and my bachelor’s degree in Computer Engineering from UIUC.

I’m fortunate enough to be a member of Data-Intensive Applications and Systems Laboratory and work with Prof. Anastasia Ailamaki. My research primarily focuses on large-scale high-performance data systems. I’m currently working on the query execution in databases.

I was a member of Carnegie Mellon Database Group and work with Prof. Andy Pavlo. During my time at CMU DB, I have been a developer for NoisePage, the self-driving in-memory database we developed at CMU.

Don’t hesitate to contact me if you would like to collaborate or need any information.
