I am a postdoc researcher in High-performance Computing group of Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, mentored by Dr. Gokcen Kestor.

Research Interest

Compiler support for parallel computing and security improvement:

  • High-performance compiler construction (with MLIR);
  • Compiler static analysis and code transformation (with LLVM);
  • Runtime optimization.
