I am an Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, where I lead the HPDA lab. My research exploits emerging hardware — such as Graphics Processing Unit (GPU), Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA), high-end CPU and Solid-State Drive
(SSD) — to build high-performance systems for graph computing, machine learning, computational omics, numerical simulation and cloud computing. I have received the prestigious NSF CAREER award, IEEE CS TCHPC Early Career Researchers Award for Excellence in High Performance Computing – 2022, the Best Dissertation Award of Electrical and Computer Engineering from the George Washington University, the Champion of GraphChallenge 2018 and 2019, the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory SRP fellowship 2019 and 2021, One of the best papers in VLDB '20, and Provost Early Career Award for Research Excellence 2022.
Prior to joining Rutgers, I was a Presidential Fellow Assistant Professor at Stevens Institute of Technology and an assistant professor at the University of Massachusetts Lowell. I received the Ph.D. degree from the George Washington University in 2017 (advisor: Prof. H. Howie Huang), and B.E. from Huazhong University of Science and Technology in 2011.
