I'm a PhD student at UCSD, fortunately advised by Prof. Hao Zhang and Prof. Tajana Šimunić Rosing. My goal is to build efficient, reliable and secure large-scale ML systems and models using both today's and next-generation technology.

I am recently working on algorithms and systems for efficient LLM serving and inference, as well as large model training in memory-constrained scenarios and heterogeous settings.

Before joining UCSD, I have spent wonderful time working with top-notch researchers in the field of ML systems, including working as a visiting reseach intern with Prof. Song Han. I completed my undergrad degree at UC Berkeley with majors in CS and Physics.
