Brief Intro

    Shi Zheng(施政)
I'm Shi Zheng and currently I'm a first year PhD student working on concurrency and dynamic analysis at PLSE lab of SoC, NUS. My research interests include program analysis and data race detection.


2023 - now, PhD in Computer Science, School of Computing, National University of Singapore
2021 - 2022, Master in Computing, School of Computing, National University of Singapore
2016 - 2020, BSc in Chemistry, Zhiyuan College, Shanghai Jiao Tong University(SJTU)

Why left chemistry and entered CS

(1) Concurrency and program analysis are intesting research topics to me.
(2) CS is more thinking-heavy, at least in the subfield that I have stepped in, but chem is more on experiments and I prefer thinking on my seat than working in the lab.
(3) A very practical reason: averagely a cs graduate can earn more than chem.
(4) CS is safer than chem, because in the worst case, you can crash your PC or server, but in chem, it's far more serious!

Beyond studying

(1) Dota2 player, 3500+ hours, but 1000 mmr.
(2) Big fan of MapleStory, WOW, Elden Ring and Monster Huntor World.
