I am currently in my final year of pursuing a Ph.D. in Computer Science at Georgia Institute of Technology, under the guidance of Prof. Vivek Sarkar. Prior to embarking on my Ph.D. journey, I earned a master degree in Computer Science from Rice University in 2017.

My research is primarily centered around ensuring the correctness and enhancing the performance of accelerated applications. Most of my work is related to OpenMP and the LLVM compiler. I work closely with researchers from national laboratories and actively engage with the LLVM and OpenMP communities, while also collaborating with colleagues from various universities.
