I am a Ph.D. student in Computer Engineering at Stony Brook University. I am currently working with Mixed-Domain Embedded Systems Laboratory advised by Prof. Alex Doboli . I received my B.S degree in Communication Engineering from Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications (BUPT) in 2012, China.


My research interests include innovation and creativity in electronic design, data center networking, algorithm design. I was working as a research assistant in Netlab of Tsinghua University from 2011 to 2012, focusing on routing algorithm design in data center networks. Currently, I am developing a software that implements innovation and creativity in circuit design. The goal of the software is to provide valuable knowledge base and potential directions for circuit designers to creatively design their circuits. By studying a database of published circuit designs, the software is expected to extract helpful information for specific performance requirements.
