About Me

I am a 5th-year Ph.D. student in Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Notre Dame, advised by Prof. Meng Jiang. Before that, I received my Master degree of ECE department at UIUC.

I am actively seeking industrial R&D opportunities, as well as Postdoctoral positions, beginning in 2024. I am happy to engage in discussions regarding potential opportunities!
