I am an Assistant Professor and Y. T. Lo Faculty Fellow in Electrical and Computer Engineering, and an affiliated Assistant Professor in Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). I lead the Systems Platform Research Group.

I have been working on memory and storage systems, with a focus on their access Interface, architecture Specialization, and development Approaches (the ISA of memory and storage systems). My research received NSF CAREER Award, NSF CRII Award, IEEE Micro Top Picks, USENIX Best Paper Award, and a few industry awards. Some of them have been transferred into products and featured by popular media agencies.

Most recently, I am superexcited to build sustainable AI infrastructures and platforms with computer architecture and systems techniques to accelerate the AI-driven knowledge discovery and retrieval. We also organized the first Workshop on Hot Topics in System Infrastructure (HotInfra'23).
