I am Xin Dong, currently a Ph.D. student at Northeastern University, Computer Science Department. I am in the High Performance Computing Lab (WVH 370). My primary research interests are systems, parallel algorithms and software parallelization methods/tools. My advisor is Prof. Gene D. Cooperman.

I was born in Shihezi, Xinjiang, which is a small yet beautiful city in the northwest part of China. I lived there until I finished my senior year of high school. Then I went to Fudan University in Shanghai, where I got a Bachelor's degree in the Applied Mathematics major. I obtained a Master's degree in the Computer Science major after studied at Shanghai Jiaotong University for two and a half years.
