About Me

I am currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Rutgers University. I received my Ph.D. degree from Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at University of Minnesota, Twin cities in 2015, under the supervision of Prof. Keshab K. Parhi. I received my Bachelor degree and Master degree from Department of Intensive Instruction and School of Electronics Science and Engineering in 2007 and 2010, respectively, both from Nanjing University, China.

Research Interest

I am interested in co-designing the algorithms (especially on artificial intelligence, machine learning and signal processing) and low-power fault-tolerant hardware to address the emerging challenges for embedded and intelligent systems in big data and IoT eras. Specifically, my research fields include:

1) Energy-efficient high-performance deep learning and artificial intelligence systems

2) Deep learning security

3) Deep learning in domain-specific applications (communication and transportation)

4) Intelligent storage system

5) Low-power computing technique for machine learning and signal processing systems
