Currently I am a Ph.D. student at University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC). My advisor is Professor Chein-I Chang. This is the 5th year of the graduate study here at UMBC. I have worked on my Master and Ph.D. degree both under Professor Chein-I Chang's supervision. My research is mainly focused on hardware design and implementation of algorithms for Hyperspectral, Multispectral and 2-D Imagery. We are particularly interested in recently advanced Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) devices, especially their DSP functionality. I have also worked on projects related to the embedded system design for handheld devices, supported by US Army ECBC.

In the meantime, I also served as one of the system administrator for the High Performance Computing group in CSEEIT at UMBC. I was primarily responsible for a x86 based Beowulf cluster for the Optical Communication research group. I have also provided computer hardware, software, and network support for the department and assisted serveral on-going IT projects.

Year 2001~2002

During this time, I served as research associate for the Department of Geography at National Taiwan University. There, I collaborated with research fellows to follow the simulation model from UrbanSim and provided integrated planning and analysis for Taipei County, including the urban development, interactions between land use, transportation, and public policy. As the simulation environment is developed in Java, I taught Java programming language.

Year 1998~2000

It was my Sophomore year, I join the High Speed Network Laboratory (currently as Mobile and Wireless Network Laboratory). My mentor was Professor Shiann-Tsong Sheu. During that time, my research has more do to with computer networking and wireless communication. I was also involved in firmware development for multi-layer switch. In addition to that, we have also done a lot of model simulation for wired and wireless ATM network.
