I am an assistant professor (tenured) in the Computer Architecture for Embedded Systems (CAES) group at the University of Twente (NL). Previously, I was a Postdoc in Design Automation for Embedded Systems Group from 2019 to 2021. I did my PhD in Computer Science between November 2014 and May 2019 in TU Dortmund, Germany. Before my PhD, I received my bachelor and master degrees in “Interdisciplinary Program of Humanities and Social Sciences” (2011) and Computer Science (2013) respectively, from National Tsing-Hua University in Taiwan. I currently serve as Associate Editor for the IEEE Nanotechnology Magazine, and Guest Editor for the ACM Transactions of Cyber-Physical Systems and the ACM Transactions on Embedded Computing Systems.

My research interests span a wide spectrum, ranging from intricate algorithms to detailed compilation processes. Particularly, I focus on hardware-software co-design automation and bridge the gap between theory and practice in real-time system software. In addition to my academic pursuits, I am committed to mentorship, engaging in programs such as Google and ESA Space Summer of Code. Furthermore, I am passionate about contributing to open-source development, with a particular emphasis on RTEMS. This multifaceted dedication reflects my enthusiasm for both theoretical exploration and hands-on implementation in the ever-evolving landscape of technology.

Program Co-Chair
Appointed Member in Young Academy Twente (YAT)
Design and Implementation of Real-Time Systems
The course is designed to provide theoretical and practical insights using a combination of lectures and hand-on labs in which attendees will learn to develop a real-time application on top of a widespread real-time operating system. Throughout the lectures and labs, the students will learn the relation between applications’ timing properties and the underlying system software components. Within the labs, the students will be guided to program a wearable device, e.g., smartwatch, and implement alternative scheduling strategies as well as low-level primitives, resulting in different timing behaviors.
Dutch Real-Time Systems
We aim at creating a sustainable community on real-time systems in NL to combine its research forces, stimulate collaborations cohesively, and favor its outreach internationally.
