Xin Sunny Huang Ph.D. in Computer Science at Rice University

About Me

I obtained my Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from Rice University in 2019. At Rice, I worked with Eugene Ng in BOLD (Big Data and Optical Lightpaths Driven Lab). My research interests are in networks, systems, and big data.

Before joining Rice, I received my Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering from Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 2013. I have also interned at Google (2016, 2015) and Morgan Stanley (2012).

I grew up in Guangzhou (a.k.a. Canton). Besides computer science, food (especially "dim sum" and Cantonese cuisine), arts, and sports never fail to fascinate me. I speak Cantonese (natively), English (professionally), and Mandarin Chinese (poorly). Además, I am learning Spanish.
