I am a tenure-track assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science at Florida State University. I received Ph.D. in computer science from University of California, Riverside in 2022. Prior to that, I received B.S. in Computer Science from Peking University in 2014. During my Ph.D. studies, I worked as a student intern at Argonne National Laboratory. My research interests lie broadly in the area of high-performance computing and autonomous driving, with a special focus on reliability, efficiency, and data management. More details can be found in my CV.
