Shunning Jiang
research interests
My research interests span CS, CE and a little bit EE. I am working on projects that improves the productivity
of hardware development using Python and meta-tracing JIT. I am also a maniac of parallel architecture/abstrac-
tion/application. I seek for opportunities to accelerate emerging application domains and key algorithms, and justify
the designs with VLSI timing/area/energy results.
