Hi! My name is William Liu (刘胥飞/劉胥飛). I am a software engineer, as well as a computer scientist and cognitive scientist, originally from Madison, Wisconsin.
Currently I am a Software Engineer at a stealth startup (what a weird term) in Palo Alto, California. Our team is developing a new custom HPC and ML accelerator processor along with a robust compiler stack. I work specifically on graph optimization in our compiler stack.
I received my Bachelor’s in Cognitive Science and minor in Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon University. I am currently pursuing my Master’s in Computer Science at The University of Texas at Austin part time.
I find that I am generally interested in high performance computing, compilers, systems design, computer architecture, theoretical neuroscience, deep learning, and teaching. If you’d like to have a conversation related to any of these topics, my email is in the side bar. I’d love to discuss any interesting projects or ideas (or anything really)!
At some point in the future I hope to pursue a PhD in Computer Science to do research at the intersection of systems architecture, high-performance computing, and formal mathematical analysis.
You can find blog posts with detailed descriptions of my projects here. I also try my best to put my projects up on GitHub and keep them updated, but we all know that is rarely true :’)
