My courses

Biography

I obtained the B.S. degree in Micro-electronics from Northwestern Polytechnical University, China in 2009, and the M.S. degree in System-on-Chip Design from KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden in 2014. I am a PhD student in the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) at KTH during 2014 to 2019.

Research

Research Interests:

  • Computer architecture design, power and thermal control for chip multi-/many-processors (CMPs), Network-on-Chips (NoCs), and GPGPUs.
  • Coherency/consistency provisioning for emerging memory techniques.
  • Hardware/Software co-design for high performance parallel computing architectures.
  • Performance analysis and QoS for on-chip networking and memory systems.
