Hi, my name’s Haoran Ma. You can call me Holland. I’m a 4th-year PhD candidate in Department of Computer Science at University of California, Los Angeles. I am co-advised by Prof. Harry Xu and Prof. Miryung Kim.
My research interests are the intersection of systems and programming languages.
University of California, Los Angeles
PhD Student in Computer Science
2019 - Present
A new journey in my life!
BEng in Computer Science
2015 - 2019
I took part in the National Olympiad in Informatics in 2014 and I won the gold medal, which granted me admission to Tsinghua University for studying computer science in advance. During my studies at Tsinghua, I did research on Web API Testing, advised by Prof. Xiaoying Bai. I graduated summa cum laude from Tsinghua in 2019.
University of Oxford
Visiting Student in New College
2017 - 2018
I was selected into Yinghua Scholars Program at Tsinghua, which provided me the opportunity to go to the University of Oxford as a visiting student for one year with a full scholarship. In Oxford, I earned a full GPA in every course I studied.
I really love the formal dinner at New College.
