Dong Du

Assistant Professor at IPADS Lab, Shanghai Jiao Tong University



I am an Assistant Professor in the Institute of parallel and distributed systems (IPADS), Shanghai Jiao Tong University. My research interests include operating systems, architecture, system security (TEE), serverless computing and HW/SW co-design. I have built several systems including Penglai TEE (state-of-the-art RISC-V TEE), serverless systems (Catalyzer, ServerlessBench, and Molecule), and RISC-V IPC extension (XPC). I am also working on open-sourced communities, including RISC-V (SPMP TG chair), openEuler (RISC-V SIG maintainer) and OpenHarmony (RISC-V and TEE SIG maintainer).

Services: SOSP’23 AEC co-chair, MICRO’22 ERC, SOCC’22 TPC


Aug 2, 2023 One paper is accepted in MICRO 2023, about a new hardware-software co-design for CVM-based TEE with permission table. Based on Penglai RISC-V TEE.
Mar 11, 2023 I am co-chairing SOSP’23 Artifact Evaluation Committee (AEC). Please let me know (through email) if you have interests to join us.
Jan 31, 2023 I got the Honorable Mentions for the 2022 ACM China Doctoral Dissertation Award.
Oct 19, 2022 We have one paper published in HPCA 2023, about Efficient Distributed Secure Memory with a new merkle tree structure, based on open-sourced Penglai RISC-V TEE.
Sep 23, 2022 I was fortunate to receive The ACM Chinasys Doctoral Dissertation Award (2022). Many thanks to my advisor - Binyu Zang, Yubin Xia and Haibo Chen - and all my collaborators!
Aug 31, 2022 I started as an assistant professor at Shanghai Jiao Tong University.
Jun 1, 2022 I successfully defend my Ph.D thesis!
