Xun (Steve) Jian
Assistant Professor at Virginia Tech CS
About Me: I obtained my PhD in Computer Engineering from University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign in Summer of 2017. My primary research is computer architecture, with special interest in memory architectures, high-performance architectures, energy-efficient architectures, reliable and secure architectures.
