Short Bio: I joined Computer Science & Engineering at Louisiana State University as an Assistant Professor in Fall 2023. Before that, I worked at ByteDance/TikTok as a software engineer for compiler infrastructure. I completed my Ph.D at University of California, Riverside where I was advised by Dr. Zhijia Zhao. I am fortunate to be recipient of a Best Paper Runner-up Award at MobiSys’18 and a ACM SIGMOBILE Research Highlights (2018).
- Program analysis and optimzations to improve software relibaility.
- Programming support for Mobile and AR/VR/XR systems.
- Machine Learning and Software Engineering (e.g., AI4SE, SE4AI).
📢 I am looking for multiple highly motivated and talented students who are interested in any of the areas listed above to join my lab. If you are interested to join my lab, please reach out to me (include your CV and Transcript).
- Justin Woodring - PhD student, since Fall 2023
