About Me

Howdy, I’m Shilei Tian, a Ph.D. student in Stony Brook University, majoring in Computer Science. My research interests are high performance computing, compiler and system optimization, etc., focusing on LLVM and OpenMP. My advisor is Dr. Barbara Chapman. Here is my resume.

In addition to research, I am fascinated in programming, photography, hiking, technology, and basketball. I’m also interested in Hi-Fi. You can go to my blogs and photos in the menu. 🙂
