I am an Assistant Professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Purdue University. I obtained my Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University in 2022, where I was advised by Prof. H.-S. Philip Wong. I was a visiting researcher with Silicon Research Group at Meta (formerly Facebook) Reality Labs.

I lead the NanoX Lab @ Purdue. My research interests are in new memory device technologies and circuit designs for energy-efficient computing, spanning experimental, design, and system integration aspects for creating nanotechnology-inspired hardware chips. To date I have published more than 50 papers appearing in leading conferences (IEDM, VLSI, ISSCC, DAC, etc.) and journals (TED, JSSC, Nature Electronics, etc.). I received 2019 IEEE EDS PhD Student Fellowship and 2016 IEEE EDS Masters Student Fellowship (the only receipient in U.S. in respective years).

Openings in NanoX Lab @ Purdue ECE:
I am looking for self-motivated Ph.D. and M.S. students, postdoctoral scholars, and undergraduate researchers to join my NanoX Lab at Purdue ECE.
