Computer science Ph.D. student Sihang Liu has been awarded a 2020 Google Ph.D. Fellowship in Systems and Networking, based on his research on “Holistic Support for Persistent Memory Systems.”  Liu is advised by assistant professor of computer science Samira Kahn.

Google created the PhD Fellowship Program in 2009 to recognize and support outstanding graduate students who seek to influence the future of technology by pursuing exceptional research in computer science and related fields. Now in its twelfth year, these Fellowships have helped support approximately 500 graduate students globally.

Liu’s research interests are in computer architecture and operating systems, specifically in system and architectural for the imminent persistent memory technologies.
