[Introduction] [Teaching] [Interest] [Publication] [Award] [SEG] [Correspondence]


I am an associate professor in the Department of Computer Science & Technology at Nanjing University, China. At the same time, I am also a research member of the Software Engineering Group (SEG) led by Prof. Xuandong Li , my Ph.D. supervisor. I received the B.Sc. (CUMT), M.Eng. (NJU) and Ph.D. (NJU) degrees in Computer Science in 2001, 2004 and 2009, respectively. From Sep 2007 to Sep 2008, I worked in the INRIA AtlanMod team led by Prof. Jean Bézivin, my co-supervisor in France. Currently, I am working at SnT of Luxembourg University as a visiting scholar in the SVV Lab led by Prof. Lionel Briand. The visiting period is from March to September, 2013.


Research Interest

My overall research interests relate to model driven aspects of software engineering, with the aim of facilitating the rapid and reliable development and maintenance of both large and small software systems. My recent work is focusing on MDE based embedded systems, including patterns driven MDE development, bridging heterogeneous models, formal support for design and analysis.

Recent Selected Publication


Software Engineering Group

Software Engineering Group is founded by Prof. Guoliang Zheng and Prof. Xuandong Li in 90's last century. Many outstanding scholars and researchers in computer science and technology have collaborated  or been trained by SEG. Now SEG has many projects with financial support by National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars of China, National Nature Science Foundation of China, National Grand Fundamental Research 973 Program of China.
