I am currently a senior engineer at Wechat AI, Tencent in Beijing. My work includes development of the WeChat input method, the WeChat Open Diague Platform as well as the WeChat Translation System. I am the author of TurboTransformers, a fast runtime for transformer inference on CPU and GPU.

I received a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Tsinghua University at 2019. My advisors are Prof. Guangwen Yang and Prof. Haohuan Fu. My research focused on applying High-Performance Computing (HPC) for scientific applications. Two wonderful experiences outside campus enriched my Ph.D. study. I worked as a research scientist at the National Supercomputing Center in Wuxi from 2016 to 2019. I served as a visiting scholar under supervised of Cho-Jui Hsieh at the University of California, Davis, from 2018 to 2019.

I enjoy sports. My hobbies include jogging, football, swimming, and table tennis. I am a billiards fan and I won the bronze medal in the WXG Beijing League 2020. I am also the organizer of a table football league in my office building.
