About Me

I am a Tenure-Track Assistant Professor in Computer Science and Engineering at University of California, Riverside. Prior to that, I was a Postdoctoral Researcher at UCLA during 2019-2022. I worked with Prof. Miryung Kim on software developer tools for democrotizing heterogeneous computing. I got my Ph.D. from The Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2018, adviced by Prof. Johnny Qiang Xu.

My research lies at the unique intersection of software engineering, big data analytics, and heterogeneous computing. The vision of my research is to democratize the development of emerging software (such as ML, heterogeneous applications, big data analytics) by reinventing software testing, debugging, program synthesis, and analysis tools. I have been selected as one of the eight MIT EECS rising stars in Systems (broadly defined) in 2021.

I am actively looking for self-motivated students. Please email me if you are interested.
