My name is Ying Ye(叶颖), a sixth year PhD student at Computer Science department in Boston University. I got my Bachelor's Degree in Tongji University back in China. My advisor is Professor Richard West. Currently, I'm interested in performance isolation on multi-core, NUMA resource management and real-time system design. My resume can be found here


I developed a memory management framework in Linux, trying to provide isolation among co-running applications accessing the shared cache via page coloring. The main problem addressed in this work is the dynamic cache partitioning mechanism, e.g. when and how re-partitioning is performed, both efficiently and effectively.

I'm currently working on a real time multicore scheduling framework in Quest. Different policies have been developed according to different objectives (while real time constraints are satisfied):
balance workload across cores
reduce shared hardware resource (LLC, memory bus) contention
minimize processor energy consumption


I'm a good climber. I spend a lot of free time on climbing at CRG (or MetroRock, sometimes outdoor). Anyone who wants to join me is welcome!
