I am an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Michigan. I am affiliated with Advanced Computer Architecture Lab (ACAL). My research focuses on architecture, compiler and runtime systems, especially such systems for warehouse scale datacenters.

Check out my publications and my research group (the Clarity Lab)  to find out more about my research. Contact me at lingjia at eecs.umich.edu.
