About me


I am a postdoctoral researcher working with Professor Yuan Xie and Professor Yufei Ding in the Scalable Energy-efficient Architecture Lab (SEAL) at UC Santa Barbara. In August 2020, I received my Ph.D. in Computer Engineering from Texas A&M University, where I worked with Professor Eun Jung (EJ) Kim. Previously, I received my B.Eng. in Information and Communication Engineering from Zhejiang University, China, in 2014.


My research interests lie in the fields of computer architecture and systems, with a special focus on data movement optimization for communication/data-centric and heterogeneous architecture, as well as the interplay of machine learning and system design. My dissertation focuses on specializing interconnects to accelerate emerging applications.
