Biography

Biography

Dr. Song Jiang is currently a professor of the CSE department at University of Texas at Arlington.

His research interests include system infrastructure for big data processing, such as file and storage systems and data management systems, as well as I/O systems for high-performance computing. He was a recipient of a 2009 US National Science Foundation (NSF) CAREER award and his research activities have been continuously supported by the NSF. He has served on numerous conference program committees and proposal review panels. He has been involved in projects at Facebook and Baidu as a collaborator for providing high-quality Internet-wide services based on big data, resulting in many significant publications at top-tier conferences. Dr. Jiang’s research has generated substantial impact in industry where several of his proposed algorithms for memory and storage management have been officially adopted into mainstream systems, including the Linux kernel, the NetBSD kernel, and the storage engine of MySQL.

He received his B.S and M.S from the University of Science and Technology of China, and his Ph.D. in computer science from the College of William and Mary in 2004. From 2004 to 2006 he was a post-doctoral researcher at the Los Alamos National Laboratory where his research work was cited at the national level as a “success story” of the NNSA Laboratory Directed Research and Development program.
