About me

I am an Assistant Professor in the College of Information and Computer Sciences (CICS) at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, the flagship campus of the UMass system. I received my Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from North Carolina State University in 2020. I am a member of the Programming Language and Systems at Massachusetts (PLASMA) lab at UMass.

My research lies in the intersection between Machine Learning and Programming Systems, with an emphasis on improving the speed, scalability, and reliability of Machine Learning through innovations in algorithms and programming systems (e.g., compilers, runtime). I am also interested in leveraging Machine Learning to improve High Performance Computing. My current research focuses on both algorithm and system optimizations of Deep Multi-Task Learning and Graph Machine Learning.
