In July 2007, I joined the State Key Laboratory for Novel Software Technology, Nanjing University. I am a faculty member of the
Institute of Computer Software and the
Dept. of Computer Science and Technology,
I worked as an assistant professor from 2007 to 2009, and as an associate professor from 2010 to 2016. I was promoted professor in 2017.
I got my Ph.D. in computer science from the University of Science and Technology of China
(USTC) in Jun. 2007. My supervisor is Prof. Yulin Feng. I got my bachelor's
degree in computer science from USTC in Jun. 2002. Before entering USTC, I
studied in the
Suzhou Middle School, Suzhou China, from Sep.1995 to Jun.1997.
I studied in the Technology Center of Software Engineering,
Institute of Software, Chinese Academy of Sciences (TCSE, ISCAS), as a co-educated Ph.D. student of both USTC and TCSE ISCAS from Sep. 2003 to Jul. 2007. From Sep. 2005 to Sep. 2006, I studied in the
Department of Computing,
Hong Kong Polytechnic University, as a visiting student.
To potential students
- Distributed algorithms
- Distributed systems
- Formal specification and verification
- Software system reliability
I am recruiting well motivated and dedicated Ph.D. / master students to do research
in above-mentioned areas. Undergraduate students are also encouraged to contact me, to work on
