Yi-Wei Ci received his Ph.D., M.S., and B.S. degrees in Computer Science from Harbin Institute of Technology in 2010, 2005, and 2003, respectively. In 2011, he joined the Institute of Software at the Chinese Academy of Sciences. From 2012 to 2014, he served as a postdoctoral fellow at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. His research interests primarily revolve around computer architecture and operating systems. He is particularly dedicated to the development and verification of innovative hardware designs, employing abstraction techniques for both hardware and software.
