Bio

I am a 6th-year Ph.D Candidate under the guidance of Prof. Tony Nowatzki. My research interests mainly lie on designing and analyzing spatial architectures as well as the assosiated compilation techniques.

Prior to joining UCLA, I worked as a research intern at Prof. Zhiru Zhang's group for one year, which was the last year of my undergraduate. I got my CS B.E. degree from ACM Honored Class, Shanghai Jiao Tong University.

I will be on the job market this fall, especially targeting academic positions. All the statements are ongoing.
