I was born in Chengdu, China, which is a beautiful, peaceful and leisurely city known as "People never want to leave" and "The land of Abundance" ("Tian Fu Zhi Guo" in Chinese). I studied at University of Electronic Science and Technology of China (UESTC), and got my BS and MS  degree there. I was lucky enough to join in a group led by Dr. Jianhao Hu in UESTC where I majorly worked on network-on-chip design for wireless communication system.

After that, I decided to pursue my PhD degree in the US, so in 2009 I came to the University of Florida, which is located at Gainesville, FL. Gainesville is a peaceful place for researchers; but it is also a dynamic city with plenty of outdoor activities. It is also where people can enjoy the famous Florida sunshine everyday.

I conducted my PhD study in the IDEAL lab, ECE Department of University of Florida, under the supervision of Dr. Tao Li. My PhD research direction is next-generation on-chip interconnect network for Chip-Multiprocessor architecture (CMP). 

In 2012, I did eight-month internship in Marvell Semiconductor at Chandler, AZ (Former,Intel XScale group), where I actively participated in the performance evaluation of an ARMv8-compatible processor as a performance modeling engineer. 

After graduated from the University of Florida in 2012, I joined Qualcomm Inc. at San Diego, CA, and started working as a GPU architect for Qualcomm's Adreno graphic processor (GPU) in Snapdragon processor. San Diego also has amazing weather, as well as world-class entertainments and landscapes. In Qualcomm, I am proud to participate in the design of the Snapdragon processors which are shipped all around the world and ultimately impact millions of smart phone and tablet users.

And thanks TJ for your encouragement, support and love. Thank you for brightening up my life. Without your love, my world will be colorless.
