Brief Bio

I am an Assistant Professor at University of North Texas in the Computer Science and Engineering department. My research interests are multi-core/many-core processor design, including Network-on-Chip, memory systmes. I am also interested in desiging reliable and power efficient systems.
I received my BS and MSEE degree from Harbin Institute of Technology and Northeastern University respectively. I received my Ph.D degree from the Pennsylvania State University. I have also worked many years in the industry.
