Hello! My name is Daniel Qian.
Currently, I am a 1st year PhD student in Computer Science at NYU Courant, advised by Jinyang Li and Anirudh Sivaraman. Currently I am working on designing Consensus and BFT protocols around new network primitives; however I have a broad interest in Distributed Systems and ML Systems.
Previously, I was a software engineer at Bloomberg LP. There, I worked on observability infrastructure and ML in finance.
I graduated in August 2021 from Johns Hopkins University with both a B.S. and M.S.E. in Computer Science. My advisor was Yair Amir, who I worked with at the Distributed Networks and Systems Lab. For my Master's degree, I wrote a project report on my research in Byzantine Reslience for Power Grid substations.
I like making websites. Mine don't tend to be very pretty (as you can see from this one), unless someone else does the design, but they usually serve a fun purpose! Here are a few examples.
