Liu Liu has been with the Department of Electrical, Computer, and Systems Engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) as an assistant professor since July 2022.
He has a Ph.D. in Computer Science at University of California, Santa Barbara, under the supervision of Dr. Yuan Xie and Dr. Yufei Ding.
His research interests reside in the intersection between computer architecture and machine learning, towards high-performance, energy-efficient, and robust machine intelligence.
He leads the research on Elastic Processing & Hardware Architectures, with publications in top-tier conferences on machine learning and computer architecture (e.g., ICML, ICLR, MICRO, and ASPLOS).
He earned an M.S. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from UC Santa Barbara in 2015.
He is a recipient of the Peter J Frenkel Fellowship from the Institute of Energy Efficiency at UCSB.
