About Me

Hi, I am Yu, a first-year PhD student in Computer Science department, U of R. I am interested in computer system in general and programming for fun. Currently, I am working with Prof. Zhu. My current research is about creating a better system for Computer Vision and optimizing Web runtime, such as Chromium.

Before I came to U of R, I attended Carnegie Mellon University as Master’s student in Material Science. I worked with Prof. Rollett as a researcher on scientific computing.

Co-Design Stereo Vision System

October 2018 - Present

The key for Stereo Vision applications is the ability to obtain theambient information and estimate the depth of their surround-ings. We designed a framework, Stereo Engine, that leverages the unique characteristics in stereo vision and supports a wide range of algorithms in this domain.

Task Scheduling in Runtime Application

March 2018 - November 2018

Web applications are mainly user-driven/user-oriented. When and what tasks will be triggered and executed largely depends on user behaviors. It is a open issue for mobile developers to design a scheduler that can fulfill user experience (to speedup) meanwhile decrease the amount of energy consumption. We proposed a proactive event scheduler. Instead of optimizing based on current system state, we expand our optimization scope to speculate future system state. By increasing our optimization scope, we expect to enhance the user experience and lower the energy consumption.
