I passed my thesis defense in Dec 2009, and in Feb 2010, I formally graduated with my Ph.D. from the Computer Science department at Cornell University. My advisor was Prof. Andrew C. Myers, and I was a member of the Applied Programming Languages group.

I have joined Facebook as a Research Scientist. For most up-to-date information, please visit my new homepage at http://sites.google.com/site/qixin99/.
