Yuqi Xue


I am a ECE Ph.D. candidate at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I am advised by Prof. Jian Huang as a member of the Systems Platform Research Group. My research focus is on architectures and systems for hardware accelerators. More specifically, I am interested in both efficiency and security of accelerators.

Prior to my Ph.D. study, I obtained my Bachelor’s degree from UIUC in 2021.
