Research and Industry Experience with the Blockchain
This talk will walk the audience through the speaker's research and industrial experience of designing and building blockchain infrastructure in the past year. It contains two major parts: Lessons from the Ethereum Virtual Machine and an on-going chain local storage research effort at Cornell.
Bio: Ted Yin 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.
