About Man-Kit

ALOHA ( ̄▽ ̄)ノ I am a first year PhD student at the University of Edinburgh, supervised by Prof. Luo Mai. My research interests lie in the intersection of Distributed Systems, Specialized Accelerators and Large Scale Machine Learning. The current research direction focuses on how to design an automatic and scalable distributed systems to train gigantic machine learning models efficiently.
