I earned my PhD in Computer Engineering at the University of California, Santa Barbara in Spring 2016. Before transferring to UCSB with my advisor Dr. Yuan Xie , I spent three years as a PhD student in the department of Computer Science & Engineering at the Pennsylvania State University. I received my bachelor's degree in Microelectronics from Harbin Institute of Technology in 2011.

I have been closely collaborating with industry labs such as HP Labs and AMD Research. I've recently interned at Baidu USA R&D center (2015 summer, Sunnyvale, USA), HP Labs (2014 summer, Palo Alto, USA), and ETH Zurich (2012 summer, Switzerland).

My research interests include a broad range of computer system architecture and high-performance computing. My recent projects focus on Network-on-Chip for (heterogeneous) manycore processors, emerging non-volatile memories, and datacenter architectures.
