Prospective Graduate Students


My lab is open to highly motivational and proactive students. The minimum requirement to join my lab is to take all of my undergrad courses (listed below) with at least A grade, or their equivalents in other good institutions.Good practical background on operating systems is required as well. Prospective students should also be proficient in English. If you meet all of those requirements and are interested in studying Embedded Systems (including IoTs),  Computer Architecture, and/or HPC (High-Performance Computing), feel free to contact me via either email or phone
