I am a Ph.D. student at the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) co-advised by Prof. Daniel Sanchez and Arvind. I worked with Prof. Jason Cong while I was an undergrad at UCLA. My research is in computer architecture and systems.

Here are links to my CV and Github profile.


  • A Method for Translating PRAM-optimal Algorithms to AT^2 Interconnect-optimal circuits


  • Bonsai: High-Performance Adaptive Merge Tree Sorting
