Gengrui (Edward) Zhang is a PhD candidate in the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering at the University of Toronto under the supervision of Hans-Arno Jacobsen. His research focuses on distributed systems, especially consensus algorithms and fault tolerance. He aims to develop architectures and algorithms that target high performance, fortify security, generalize better, and uncover the structure underlying a problem. He is especially interested in developing consensus algorithms binding efficiency and robustness under various fault-tolerant models and applying theoretical problems to real-world applications. Towards these objectives, he is also broadly interested in questions related to consistency models, blockchain systems, distributed file systems, cloud databases, P2P systems, and CRDTs.
