Master of Science student
Department of Computer Science
University of Toronto


I was born and raised in the beautiful city of Qingdao, Shandong Province, China. I attended the Qingdao No. 2 Middle School (it is actually a high school instead of a middle school; this mistranslation legacy still seems to remain) where I had the honor to grow up with the most talented of my peers.

I graduated with the Bachelor of Applied Science degree from the Electrical and Computer Engineering program at the University of Toronto. I am one of the two Adel S. Sedra Gold Medal winner of my year. Here are a few more links relevant to my undergraduate study: link, link.

During my undergraduate years, I had the honor to work on a summer research project with Prof. Jonathan Rose, and to participate in internships at Google twice and Intel Programmable Solutions Group (formerly known as Altera) twice.

I am currently a Master of Science (MSc) student in Computer Science at the University of Toronto. I have the honor to be supervised by Prof. Gennady Pekhimenko.

Research Interests

I am generally interested in the area of system optimization: parallel computing and algorithms, distributed training and machine learning compilers.
