I received my Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from The University of Texas at Austin in 2017 working with Vijay Janapa Reddi. I spent my last year of graduate school as a Research Fellow visiting the Harvard Architecture, Circuits, and Compilers Group.

I do research in computer architecture and systems. I like building better software and hardware to make next-generation client and cloud computing fast, energy-efficient, intelligent, and safe.

My dissertation research advocates the Watt Wise Web: the next major milestone in the Web evolution driven by the energy-efficiency of mobile devices. I take a holistic approach that involves networks, applications, programming languages, runtime systems, and processor architectures. Take a look at my defense talk.

I have also investigated processors and runtime systems for cloud servers of the future driven by managed-language-based, event-driven Web applications that are increasingly prevalent in today's cloud environment. A key enabler of this line of research is a benchmark suite that we now open-sourced.

My undergraduate research focused on enabling modern GPUs for general-purpose computing. I researched at both the software layer (parallel EDA algorithms) and the hardware layer (IP router microarchitecture). My undergraduate advisor is Prof. Yangdong Deng at Tsinghua University.
