I obtained my PhD in Computing at Imperial College London in 2014, under the supervision of Professor Wayne Luk. Before that, I received my BEng and MPhil degrees in Computer Science and Engineering from the Chinese University of Hong Kong, in 2008 and 2010, respectively. My research was about FPGA acceleration of sequential Monte Carlo method (particle filter) and Proximity Query process. See my publications, DBLP list and Google Scholar Citations for details.

I am currently an electronic design engineer at Intel Programmable Solution Group (formerly Altera). My responsibility involves developing embedded hardware and software for system-on-chip FPGA devices, for instance deep learning based object detection system, phasor measurement unit, motor control applications, battery management for hybrid electric vehicles, and functional safety of programmable electronics. I worked as a placement student in Research and Development department of ARM Ltd, Cambridge in 2010.

I have all round experience in a number of cross-disciplinary areas within FPGA, SoC and embedded real-time system. My recent interest is in hardware acceleration of machine learning, particularly deep learning based algorithm for object detection.
