About Me

As a member of the Parallel Processing Institute, I’m doing research in computer architecture area, mainly about simulation, performance evaluation, etc. I love sports, movies and reading.



2011.9 ~ present Master in Software School, Fudan University
2007.9 ~ 2011.6 B.S. in Software School, Nanjing University


Research Area

Computer Architecture, Simulator Acceleration


Research Projects

2010.7 ~ present Improving extensibility and accelerating for full-system multi-core simulation
Project description: To ease the process of extending novel functional model(FM) and timing model(TM) in full-system multi-core simulators, we investigate a loosely-coupled functional-driven framework with architecture-independent interface between FM and TM. To guarantee cycle-accuracy in the loosely-coupled design, a comprehensive analysis of FM/TM divergence is presented and lightweight solutions are provided to resolve the divergence. Parallelization will be efficiently applied to accelerate the simulation speed as interleaving will be known before TM.
