I’m a second year Ph.D. student in the Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science and Engineering at University of Washington. My research field is Computer Architecture and I’m advised by Prof. Luis Ceze.

Prior to UW, I obtained my Bachelor and Master degree from Department of Electronics Engineering, National Chiao-Tung University. During my Master degree, I worked with Prof. Bo-Cheng Lai.

Besides doing research, I enjoy tennis and hiking.
