Given the low activity in pgsql-students, forward here to get more feedbacks.

I am pretty interested in the ideas listed in GSOC 2017 page on Postgresql, especially the idea "Eliminate O(N^2) scaling from rw-conflict tracking in serializable transactions". For my PhD program in Tsinghua University, I focus on operating system scalability and performance on multicore processors. One of my jobs is to design the benchmark suite to stress kinds of operating system interfaces from user level and analyze performance. After that, I will propose solutions to solve the problem. For example, I have published papers in improving synchronization primitives in Linux kernel and pretty familiar with kinds of locks and lock-free techniques. I think this project is similar to my previous work and I believe that I have the confidence and ability to do this well. Besides, I speak fluent English and I am full available during the whole summer. I am wondering whether I can join this project and work with you guys? In case that this project is allocated to other people, I am also open to pick other projects in Postgresql. Let me know if you have questions or feedbacks. Thanks, Charles.
