I am currently a N00B Ph.D student but fortunately advised by Prof. Hu & Prof. Feng in DSAL, Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST)HUST. I also obtained B.E. degree in HUST.
My research is mainly about building fault-tolerant memory systems with emerging devices.

This blog contains some random paper reading notes and trivial thoughts.
