He received the 2011 ACM TODAES Best Paper Award from ACM Transactions on Design Automation of Electronic Systems (Only one best paper was selected each year in all the fields of design automation.).

I enjoy teaching (proud of being a good teacher) and love to do research, especially working with students together.

I work closely and happily with all of my students and 14 graduated PhD’s.  The relationship lasts forever. In these  5 years, three of them received UTD ECS Best PhD Dissertation Awards.  Glad to work with and teach PhD students (or Visiting students, scholars 访问学生、学者) how to do research, and write papers in parallel embedded systems, embedded software, parallel computers and networking, etc. or anything you like to pursue more.  Feel free to contact me. 

Being a Buddhist, I have been trying to improve myself everyday to be a kinder and happier person. I respect all people in each religion or no religion. Everyone is equal with a beautiful Buddha heart.

 I am now reading and revising the translation of a commentary of a great Buddhist Sutra, Amitabha Sutra, 佛说阿弥陀经要解弥陀要解,英文翻译。 Here is The translation of the commentary 弥陀要解 英文翻译.
