Fourth year PhD candidate at UCSC (University of California, Santa Cruz) in Computer Networking.

(All but dissertation, finding a faculty position!)

About Me

I'm a third year PhD student at UCSC, working on Computer Networking.

I got my B.S. degree in Applied Physics and B.E. degree in Computer Science from USTC in 2014.

I enjoy reasoning. I have high-level analytical skills which have been already applied to every corner of my work and my life.

"Practices always go with concepts" and "Do the best" are my mottoes.

Research & Work Experience

Ph.D. Student - UCSC (Aug.2017 - Now)

Computer Networking, advised by Chen Qian

We are currently actively working on the topic of light-weight software load balancer in the data center as well as the network edge. Besides that, my research interests covers compact data structures in networking and data bases, routing algorithms for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).


Postgraduate - CASIA (Sep.2014 - Jun.2017)

Heterogeneous Computing, advised by Lei Wang

The first year of my postgraduate education is spent on all kinds of courses, and as a Direct Ph.D. student in CAS, I must take much more credits than those Master students to directly gain a Ph.D. degree.

I made a driver for MaPU (a not well-known coprocessor) and its corresponding user library during this period.

The ultimate aim is to port OpenCL to ARM-MaPU heterogeneous system while providing a user-friendly interface programming on MaPU.

More details can be found on MaPU-gem5 and MaPU-driver.


B.S. Thesis at CASIA (Apr.2014 - Aug.2014) Download Thesis

Design and Implementation of An Entropy Decoding Module of High-Definition Videos, supervised by Ling Li

I made an RTL description of an H.264 entropy decoder cooperating with MaPU, and it has passed the full series of official test cases and was patented ( A zero-order exponential Columbo code decoder and decoding method and CAVLC entropy decoder and entropy decoding method) by my lab.

Note: "石守谦" is my Chinese name, which you can find at the inventor lists after my professor and supervisor.

Sorry for the absence of the translation of the whole thesis and patents.

B.E. Thesis at USTC (Oct.2013 - Jan.2014) View Source Download Thesis

The Primary Exploration of A Configurable Intelligent Game System, supervised by Guiquan Liu

I independently designed and implemented a framework of chess-like games and an artificial intelligent engine that can be adapted to many popular chess types including Chinese Chess, Gobang and Chinese Draughts, with very little efforts (assumed at the level of 200 lines of code).

My original work is highly appraised by my supervisor Mr. Liu and he graded me 98 out of 100.

Because of the complexity of the chess "Go", I didn't manage to define an appropriate evaluation function of it.

Sorry for the absence of the translation of the whole thesis and absence of the readme file.

Co-Founder & Chief Developer (Part-time) - Jining Little Dream Electronic Technology Ltd. (Mar.2016 - Now)

We are committed to the development of automotive electronics research and tools in China and to boost the growth of Chinese automotive industry by providing tools and full-life-cycle solutions for functional safety development, hardware in the loop test and AUTOSAR software development under V model.


Research Assistant - SoC lab in USTC (2012 - 2014)

I participated in the independent development of a graphics card in the SoC lab, which included porting OpenGL and RTL design. Now this work is applied to the production environment, and my old fellows are working hard in their newly-founded company -- Suzhou Suxianwei Electronic Technology Ltd.
