About Me | CV (1/2023)

I am an Assistant Professor in the Computer Science Department and an affiliated faculty in the Goergen Institute for Data Science at University of Rochester. I graduated from The University of Texas at Austin, and previously held visiting researcher positions at Arm Research and Harvard University.

I do software and hardware research for visual computing, an exciting area where a challenging problem in computing might become significantly easier when one considers how computing interacts with conventionally non-computing domains such as imaging and human perception at the system level. My research group page has more to offer.

I am always looking for students. If you also like hacking software and hardware systems and enjoy teaching your colleagues something new everyday, please read this and send me an email.
