About

I received my PhD from the Institute for Computational and Mathematical Engineering (ICME) at Stanford in 2018, where I was advised by Eric Darve. I was an intern at Nvidia Research in summer 2018, an intern at Center for Computing Research in Sandia National Laboratories for three summers (2015-2017), and an intern at Computational Materials Science Group in Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in summer 2013.

My research focuses on developing fast, robust, and scalable algorithms to solve large-scale problems in scientific computing and data science on modern computing platforms. The following paraphrase of Shakespeare (The Merry Wives of Windsor, Act II, Scene ii) by David Keyes et al. tells my research motivation.

‘‘If you can speed up linear algebra kernels, the world’s your oyster, which you with sword will open.’’
