Hi! Here’s Siyuan (柴思远)! I am a senior student major in Computer Science and Electrical Engineering at Northwestern University. My current research interest focuses on Operating System design, HPC, ML and the intesection of them.

Right now, I am working closely with Prof. Peter Dinda in Prescience Lab. We focus on kernel-level development and operating system designs. I am also part of Image and Video Processing Lab led by Prof. Aggelos Katsaggelos. I worked on AI in Medical Imaging there. Before I transferred to Northwestern in 2018, I was in Washington Univserity in St. Louis where I worked with Prof. Xuan Zhang on autonomous driving simulation.
