Ziqiang Feng (Edmond)

I am a fifth-year PhD student at the Computer Science Department of Carnegie Mellon University. My advisor is Professor Mahadev Satyanarayanan (Satya). I am broadly interested in edge computing, distributed systems, databases, video analytics, and systems of/by/for machine learning. I currently focus on video analytics systems on the edge. I work on Elijah (cloudlet-based edge computing) and Eureka (interactive image search and visual machine learning).

Before joining CMU, I received my M.Phil and B.S in Computing from the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, where I researched hardware-conscious database operations with Professor Eric Lo (now at CUHK).

I am one of the seven recipients of the Croucher Foundation Doctoral Scholarship in 2017.
