Ph.D. 2005, University of Florida
I received my Bachelor's and Master’s degrees in Computer Science & Engineering from Shanghai Jiaotong University, China. After that, I obtained a Ph.D. degree in Computer Engineering from the University of Florida in Spring 2005. My research area is computer systems and architecture focusing on many design issues on CPUs and GPUs, quantum processors, accelerators and applications for deep learning neural networks, and blockchain and its applications. My works were published in diverse conferences and journals including ISCA, HPCA, PPoPP, DAC, ICS, IPDPS, SRDS, and multiple IEEE/ACM journals. I received an ORAU Ralph E. Powe Junior Faculty Enhancement Award in 2007 and the Best Paper Award from IEEE International Green and Sustainable Computing Conference (IGSC) in 2019 and IEEE International Conference on Computer Design (ICCD) processor architecture track in 2001. I am a senior member of the IEEE and the ACM.
