research interests
My research interests span CS, CE and a little bit EE. Currently I am working on projects that attempt to close
the gap between software and RTL design using Python and meta-tracing JIT. I am also a maniac of parallel
architecture/abstraction that harmornizes thread- and data-level parallelism in space/time. I seek for opportunities
to accelerate emerging application domains and key algorithms. I love to incorporate VLSI timing/area/energy
results to justify my designs.
