I am a Ph.D. candidate advised by Prof. Dejan Marković in the Electrical Engineering Department at the University of California, Los Angeles, where I am a member of the Parallel Data Architectures Group and a Broadcom UCLA Fellow in the circuits and embedded systems program.

I am interested in integrating circuits and embedded systems, signal processing, and nano-device technologies to address major social challenges such as healthcare, information accessibility, and energy. Specifically, my future research focuses on 1) developing embedded sensing and computing systems to promote economical and pervasive healthcare services; 2) innovating VLSI architectures to support energy-efficient and high-performance big data analysis in server systems.
