About me

I will be a Ph.D. student at University of California San Diego (UCSD) supervised by Professor Xinyu Zhang. I received my B.E. degree with honors from Southeast University (SEU) in 2024. My expertise lies in EE, with a primary focus on baseband signal processing for wireless communications and FPGA implementation. My interests extend beyond my core field, encompassing systems and networking, as well as machine learning within the realm of CS. Beyond academia, I have a deep appreciation for open-source software and the collaborative spirit it fosters.

The application mmCEsim is a powerful tool to simulate millimeter wave (mmWave) channel estimation (CE) for both experts and learners.

OMPL-SBL not only cuts down time complexity by more than 95% of the SBL algorithm, but also achieves a higher estimation accuracy.

The proposed patterns can reduce more than 50% pilot overhead at 0 dB SNR while maintaining the same accuracy of CE.

FLAMES is a header-only C++ library for Vitis HLS, simplifying the design workflow of signal processing modules based on linear transformations.
