Short Bio:

I am a fifth-year PhD student advised by professor David Wentzlaff. My research interest lies in the field of computer architectures. In particular, I currently explore the integration of emerging technologies with domain-specific architectures to build scalable computer systems for the years to come following the end of Moore's law. In past research projects, I also experimented with memory and cache optimizations, operating systems, performance tuning, and workload characterization.
UPDATE: I am currently in the job market, looking for opportunities to lead new ideas and explore new challenges.
