I am always looking for highly motivated and hard-working students interested in working at the intersection of computer architecture with machine learning, data mining, and hardware security. Please contact me if you are interested in working with me.

I am an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the UC Riverside. I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science at the University of Virginia in 2019, advised by Professor Kevin Skadron, where I was a member at the Center for Research on Intelligent Storage and Processing in Memory (CRISP). My focus of research is on novel computing paradigms, near-data processing, and application-specific reconfigurable accelerators. My research has resulted in several publications at top-tier venues (such as MICRO, ISCA, ASPLOS, HPCA, DAC, ICS, and KDD) and several patents. My work has been recognized with several awards, including John A. Stankovic Graduate Research Award from Computer Science Department at the University of Virginia for outstanding research, the UVA International Students Office Graduation Award for Academic Excellence (selected among all the international graduate students at the University of Virginia), the best paper awards at the ACM International Conference on Computing Frontiers in 2016, Best of CAL award in 2019, and the best paper nominees, including HPCA'20, FCCM'20, and IISWC'19. Additionally, I interned at Friedrich Alexander University, Apple Inc., and eBay, where I contributed in developing hardware accelerators for AI applications.
