About me


My name is Fan Chen. I am  a Ph.D. student in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Duke University under the supervision of Professor Yiran Chen and Hai “Helen” Li in Duke CEI Lab. My research interests include Computer Architecture, Emerging Nonvolatile Memory Technologies, e.g., racetrack memory, ReRAM, and Domain-Specific Accelerators.
