Felix Xiaozhu Lin

Asst. Prof. PhD in CS Purdue ECE CV Contact

PhD in Computer Science (Rice 2014), MS in CS (Tsinghua 2008), and BS in Automation (Tsinghua 2006). Grew up in Chongqing “the city of hills”.

Research (Publication)

I care about systems software – mostly for computers consuming 10 Milliwatt – 500 Watt of power. Today they include sensors, smartphones/devices, and edge servers.

My kenshō on systems research (2018-12) PDF

At Purdue, I work with a group of students who share interest in systems software. See XSEL.

Our current work bases on two premises:

1. Old kernels (e.g. Linux) are firmware

2. New OSes are defined by scenarios

I worked on smartphone OS for my PhD, e.g. the K2 project which won an award in ASPLOS’14. Today, I continue to work on various mobile/wearable topics. See our group page for all projects.
