I am starting at Cornell Tech in January 2022.
Get in touch if you are interested in joining my team!

My research group is investigating how best to build the next generation of machine-learning-centric computer systems. We study methods to co-design and co-optimize neural networks and the hardware on which they run, with a special interest in reconfigurable computing using devices like FPGAs. Our goal is to enable efficient deep learning in both mobile devices and datacenters. Our current research projects include:

  • New programmable hardware architectures based on FPGAs.
  • Automated machine learning (AutoML) and neural network compression.
  • Near-sensor machine learning for mobile devices.
  • Pre- and post-processing in machine learning systems.
