Hi, I am a fifth year PhD candidate in Department of Computer Science, Duke University. I got my bachelor degree from Zhejiang University, China and master degree from Chinese Academy of Sciences. My research interest is computer architecture, especially for emerging technology. I am expected to graduate December, 2013.



I am co-advised by Prof. Alvin Lebeck and Prof. Chris Dwyer. My research interests include computer architecture for emerging nanotechnology, on-chip interconnection networks, digital system design, simulation and analysis. Here are some projects I worked on:

    Nanophotonic network-on-chip and computing systems
Explored the architectural implications of a new molecular-scale nanotechnology. Built a power and timing model for a chromophore-based optical system using SPICE. Proposed a Network-on-Chip (NoC) high radix crossbar called molecular-scale NoC (mNoC) and evaluated its performance using GEM5 and Graphite simulator. Designed an algorithm to reduce mNoC energy consumption by creating a logical power topology.

    Cohort cores - a data parallel architecture for web servers, in collaboration with NVIDIA research
Profiled HTTP requests of SPECWEB running on Facebook's HipHop server. Explored the similarity across the requests to improve performance and power/energy efficiency.

    FPGA implementation of a self-organizing defect tolerant SIMD Architecture (SOSA)
Validated the SOSA architecture design. Optimized the SIMD nodes design and implemented most of the ISA into an FPGA board. Analyzed the area, power, and working frequency of SIMD nodes.
