About Me

I am a ECE Ph.D. candidate at University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. I am advised by Prof. Jian Huang as a member of the Systems Platform Research Group. My research interest is architectures and systems for next-generation AI/ML infrastructure, including hardware accelerators and software systems for supporting AI workloads.

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