I am a third-year PhD student advised by Professor Christopher Batten in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Cornell University. I am part of the Computer Systems Lab (CSL) at Cornell.

I am broady interested in computer architecture, parallel programming, and parallel systems. Currently I am focusing on novel co-design techniques across algorithm, runtime system, compiler and architecture layers in computer system stack to build high-performance energy-efficient systems for task-parallel applications.

Prior to joining Cornell, I received my Bachelors in Computer Science from University of Mississippi in 2016. I worked as a research co-op at AMD Research on modeling AMD’s next-generation GPU’s cache system in gem5 simulator in 2017.

Here is my CV.
