Felix Xiaozhu Lin
Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering
Felix Xiaozhu Lin works with low-level software for exploiting emerging hardware features. His past work has focused on mobile and wearable systems — the early adopters of heterogeneous hardware. He strives to meet users' ever-increasing (and sometimes unreasonable) demands: lightning-fast UI, always-on devices, and long-lasting batteries. One of his recent projects, the K2 mobile OS, is available at www.k2os.org and won the best paper award of ASPLOS’14.
Lin received his Ph.D. at Rice University, and his B.S. and M.S. from Tsinghua University in Beijing, China. During his Ph.D. research, he worked at Nokia Research in Hollywood, IBM Research in Austin, Texas, and Microsoft Research.
