Jiawei Liu


I am a CS PhD student at UIUC advised by Lingming Zhang since 2021 Fall.

I am interested in programming systems and deep learning. My research goal is to make software systems: easy-to-use, fast and reliable by improving their programmability, performance and reliability.

Take a look at NNSmith, our recently released DNN synthesizer for automatically validating DL systems (esp. compilers).

ūü§ó Feel free to drop me an email if you are interested in my research.


Mar 24, 2023 I will intern at Google this summer to work with Cloud & Research team.
Feb 12, 2023 I will present NNSmith at ASPLOS (sponsored by ASPLOS & UIUC). See you in Vancouver!
Sep 20, 2022 NNSmith is accepted by ASPLOS’23!
Jan 25, 2022 I will intern at OctoML to work on TVM Unity!
Dec 16, 2021 Tzer is accepted by OOPSLA’22!
