About Me:

    I am a postdoctoral researcher working with Professor Jingling Xue at School of Computer Science and Engineering, The University of New South Wales.


  • 2009 - 2013       University of New South Wales (Ph.D.)
  • 2005 - 2009       University of Science and Technology Beijing (Combined M.Sc.-Ph.D.)
  • 2000 - 2004       Xian Jiaotong University (B.E.)

Research Interests:  

  • Program Analysis: Flow-Sensitivity, Context-Sensitivity, Field-Sensitivity. More efficient, scalable and precise alias analysis algorithms for bug detection on multi-threaded practical problems.
  • Compilation Techniques for Heterogeneous Systems: High-level programming language design and implementation for heterogeneous systems. Compiler optimizations for lower-lever native heterogeneous languages such as CUDA, OpenCL. Automatic parallelization and performance optimization for heterogeneous systems.
  • Parallel Programming & Optimisation: Fine-grained parallel algorithm for iterative algorithms, GPGPU and CUDA optimization, MPI process optimizing mapping for hierarchical multi-core clusters.
