Hi, my name is Zhixing Xu. I am from Hangzhou, a beautiful city in mainland China. I finished my freshman and sophomore study in Zhejiang University in China. Then, in the summer of 2011, I transferred to University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) in the USA. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from UIUC last May. This multicultural experience gives me fresh thoughts and strong ability to adapt to new environments. I have research experiences on digital circuit designs and image denoising. My research interests in the further Ph.D study include IC design, computer architecture and digital system. In my spare time, I like playing basketball, swimming and reading books. I’m eager to study on the campus of Princeton and looking forwards to know all of you.
