I am a PhD student at the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Cornell University advised by Professor Zhiru Zhang. In my first two years of PhD, I did research on high-level synthesis for FPGAs and improving the quality and productivity of HLS design. More recently, I've been working on co-designing deep neural networks for specialized hardware. I obtained my BS in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Toronto in 2014.

I've also done a number of interships over the course of my grad career. During undergrad, I interned at Altera (now part of Intel) and IBM. As a PhD student, I've interned at Microsoft Research working with Daniel Lo and Eric Chung on the neural network quantization for the Brainwave project.
