I am a Member of Technical Staff (MTS) Software Engineer in AMD. Currently, I work on AMD's open source deep learning library - MIOpen.

I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from Virginia Tech in 2017, under the supervision of Prof. Wu-chun Feng and Dr. Hao Wang. My research interests are high-performance computing, bioinformatics, and cloud computing. The focus of my research is on transforming and optimizing irregular applications for parallel architectures, including multi-core CPUs, GPUs, and multi-node systems.
