about me

Ted focused on fundamental problems of fault-tolerance, consensus protocols and storage systems during Ph.D. at Cornell University, exemplified by HotStuff protocol whose variants have been adopted by a wide spectrum of projects, Snow/Avalanche protocol that led to a public blockchain deployed among thousands of nodes worldwide, and co-founded a token-listed startup, Ava Labs. His taste of research is to build the systems that are provably correct and practically effective. Currently, he is tackling the next challenge in blockchains from a systems perspective. He is looking for research collaboration and bright intern students on this journey.
