About me

My name is 蔡醒诗, or Xing Shi Cai (Pronunciation) in English. I just finished my Master's degree in Computer Science at McGill University. My thesis is about probabilistic analysis of Kademlia, the most widely use DHT (Distributed Hash Table). Right now I am doing my PhD at McGill. My supervisor is professor Luc Devroye.

Meanwhile, I am also the VP-communication of CSGS (Computer Science Graduate Society). I was elected December 2012.

Before I had been a programmer in China and Canada. Most of the time during those years I worked for H3C. But I had also worked for Vimicro and Calltrunk.

I got my Bachelor's degree in Computer Science at Xi'an Jiaotong University in 2003. (Quite a long time ago!)

I was born at Tianshui, a small town in northwest China in 1980, but I grew up Sichuan province, which is famous for its spicy food (Szechuan cuisine).

During the daytime I study mathematics. But during the evenings I like reading and cooking. Here are some books that I have read or plan to read. And here are some of my favorite recipes.
