I am a Ph.D. candidate in the System Energy Efficiency Lab (SEELab), advised by Prof. Tajana Šimunić Rosing. I also collaborate(d) with Prof. Larry Heck (GaTech), Prof. Yunhui Guo (UTDallas), Prof. Arya Mazumdar (UCSD), Dr. Lucy Cherkasova (Arm Research), and Prof. Sicun Gao (UCSD).
Prior to joining UCSD, I received my B.S. degree from Peking University, China in 2018.

Research Interests

My research sits at the intersection of Embedded Systems, Edge Computing, Machine Learning and Networks Optimization, mainly for Internet of Things (IoT) applications.
My current focuses are (1) designing online, self-supervised, continual, multimodal and federated learning algorithms in real-world scenarios; (2) neuromorphic computing on low-power IoT devices; and (3) deploying them into the real wilderness!

The following manuscript published in IPSN'23 gives an overview of my Ph.D. research:
PhD Forum Abstract: Intelligence beyond the Edge in IoT (Best PhD Forum Presentation Award).
