Fengchen Gong

I am a second year PhD student in Computer Science at Princeton University, advised by Maria Apostolaki.

My broad research interests focus on making networks more reliable and performant. I build systems to monitor the network at fine granularity in a cost-effective and general way for better debugging, provisioning and protection.

Previously, I graduated from Stanford Unviersity with a Master degree, advised by Zakir Durumeric. I did my bachelor's in ECE from Purdue University.
