I get my PhD from Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical Engineering, University of Southern California. I work as a Graduate Research Assistant in the MARINA group with my supervisor Dr. Jeffrey Draper at Information Sciences Institute. My research focuses on computer architecture. I also have 5-year experience in VLSI chip design. Besides, I am actively involved in patent claim preparation and the general topic of law and litigation.
