I am a fourth-year Ph.D. student in Electrical and Computer engineering advised by Professor Christopher Batten at Cornell University. I am pursuing research in the area of parallel programming algorithms, runtime systems, and programmable accelerator-based architectures.

Before joining Cornell, I obtained my bachelor's degree in Microelectronics and Mathematics from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China in 2014.

Task-based parallel programming frameworks, such as Intel TBB and OpenMP, allow programmers to productively and elegantly express algorithmic parallelism, leaving thread management and load-balancing to the runtime system. Current task-based programming frameworks are designed only for commodity chip-multiprocessors. There is a rich space to explore using both software and hardware techniques to improve performance and efficiency of task-based parallel programs. My research vision is to create high-performance and productive parallel programming systems for a wide range of parallel algorithms by holistically designing software programming runtime systems and architectures.
