Jiacheng Ma (马嘉诚)

I am a third-year Ph.D. student at University of Michigan, where I work on heterogeneous systems. My Ph.D. advisor is Prof. Baris Kasikci.

Before joining UMich, I obtained a bachelor's degree from Shanghai Jiao Tong University, where I was advised by Prof. Zhengwei Qi from Shanghai Key Laboratory of Scalable Computing and Systems and Dr. Yaozu Dong from Intel Open Source Technology Center.

My research is at the bottom of the software stack. I am interested in improving the programmability, debuggability, and deployability of heterogeneous systems by designing and building novel system software. I am also interested in system virtualization and software-hardware co-design.
