I am an assistant professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Lehigh University. I received my Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Rochester in 2015, and B.S. degree from Beihang University in 2009. My research interests are in the broad area of computer architecture, with an emphasis on leveraging emerging technologies to build energy-efficient architectures. I received the IBM Ph.D. Fellowship twice.
