About Me

I'm a third-year Ph.D. candidate supervised by Professor Laurie Hendren and Professor Bettina Kemme at McGill University.

Prior to my Ph.D., I had worked on an array programming language, APL, for five years. I collaborated with Dr. Wai-Mee Ching on creating a new programming language, ELI(wiki | homepage), which was an ASCII version of APL; At beginning of my research at McGill, I worked on automatic vectorization for MATLAB, which is a dynamic language widely used in the field of engineering; Currently, I'm interested in combining array programming and in-memory database system to improve the performance of database query processing. The details of our project can be found on GitHub.
