Welcome to my website! I’m a 5th-year PhD candidate in the School of Computer Science at Georgia Tech, focusing on efficient & automated machine learning and algorithm-hardware co-design. My research philosophy centers on simplicity (“less is more”) and specialization (“jack of all trades, master of none”), aiming to develop generative AI systems that are both efficient and effective.

My CV is available at here in case you are interested !
