I'm a first year Ph.D. student in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE), University of California, San Diego (UCSD). I'm a member of System Energy Efficiency Lab (SeeLab) working with Professor Tajana Šimunić Rosing. Before entering UCSD, I received my B.S. degree from School of Electronics Engineering and Computer Science (EECS), Peking University (PKU) in 2018.
