I am a PhD Student at UC Davis working under Prof. John Owens. I received a BASc in Electrical Engineering from University of British Columbia.

Research Interests

My research interests include graphic processing unit (GPU) computing, parallel computing and graph processing. I am especially interested in using expressing graph algorithms using linear algebra. Over the years, I have also been involved in modeling mechanical electrical microsystems (MEMS) to characterize their behaviour.
