Personal profile

Overview

I am a third year PhD student at the Advanced Processor Technologies (APT) group at Department of Computer Science, University of Manchester, advised by Professor Mikel Luján and Mr Graham Riley.  

My PhD project focus on exploring hardware acceleration for Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) algorithms on embedded System On Chip (SoC) platforms. In particular, I designed SLAM algorithms that are more suitable for heterogeneous acceleration with Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) using High Level Synthesis (HLS).

I also have broad interest in domain specific acceleration and software performance optimization using heterogeneous accelerators (GPU and FPGA). I have extensive experience in C++, CUDA, OpenCL and HLS C++. I also have some experiences in OpenMP, MPI and Java.

I obtained my MSc in Advanced Computer Science from the University of Manchester, where I work on accelerating a climate modelling algorithm called Shallow Water on FPGA using OpenCL, advised by Mr Graham Riley.

I obtained my BEng in Software Engineering from Shandong University.
