I am a Ph.D. candidate of Georgia Tech majoring in Computational Science and Engineering. My supervisor is Prof. Edmond Chow. I obtained both my Bachelor's and Master's degree from Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST), China in Electronic Information Engineering. After graduation from HUST in 2006, I started to work for IBM as a Staff R&D Engineer in Shanghai till July 2009. My work at IBM mainly focused on programming model research, CELL SDK, library development, and workload optimization on IBM CELL/B.E. multi-core processor.
My research focuses on the invention of novel parallel numerical and discrete algorithms for solving real world scientific and engineering problems on emerging high performance architectures, including high-end multicore processors and accelerators. I am particularly interested in the areas of bioinfomatics, computational chemistry, and large-scale physics-based simulations, for example simulating macromolecules in the cell. My work also involves evaluating and analyzing some fundamental computing workloads and kernels, such as SpMV and FFT. This is due to the fact that they are usually the computational bottlenecks in real world scientific problems.
