Computer Engineering

Zhang's group investigates uncertainty-aware and data-driven modeling, verification and optimization techniques for multi-domain applications. Currently we focus on the following two correlated areas: uncertainty quantification, with applications to design automation of nano-scale IC/photonics, robotics and autonomous systems; and tensor computation, with applications to data analytics, machine learning algorithm and hardware design, medical image analysis.
