Zhiyuan YAO


I am a first year PhD student in Computer Networking, pursuing jointly between École Polytechnique’s networking team and Cisco Systems Paris Innovation and Research Lab (PIRL), advised by Thomas Clausen and Mark Townsley. My research interests include data-center networks, load-balancing, high-performance networking stacks, machine learning, and their applications in computer networking.

Before starting my PhD, I obtained an MSc in Internet-of-Things from École Polytechnique in 2019, and a BEng in Aerospace Engineering and Mechanics from Harbin Institut of Technology in 2017.
