Hi! I am Peter, a first-year PhD student in MIT DSG group, co-advised by Mike Cafarella and Mike Stonebraker. I graduated Summa Cum Laude from University of Pennsylvania with a BSE degree in Networked & Social Systems Engineering (NETS). Baile (百樂) is my Chinese first name, meaning a hundred happiness.

I am interested in the intersection of databases, distributed systems, and machine learning. Previously, I am a member of Penn Database group advised by Professor Zack Ives, building systems for ML. Prior to this, I worked with Professor Oleg Sokolsky from the PRECISE Center on software analysis tools. I was also a member of the Penn Distributed Systems Lab, working with Professor Sebastian Angel and Professor Vincent Liu.
