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 am using Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) and High Level Synthesis (HLS) to design hardware accelerators for the most computationally-intensive modules of SLAM algorithms.
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++, OpenMP, MPI, CUDA, OpenCL and HLS C++.
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.
