I am a master’s student at Purdue University, and a system researcher at Crossroads System Exploration Lab(XSEL), advised by Prof. Felix Xiaozhu Lin.

I enjoy system building/hacking to address new chanllenges. My previous projects involve Linux kernel, binary translation and secure edge processing.

I also hack hardware for research purposes. My favorite editor is Emacs.
