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


I am a 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 B�zivin, 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.

Publication & Technique Report

Selected papers and technique reports are list below:

1. Journal Papers

2. Conference Papers

2. Others


We usually have seminar at Room 504, MengMinwei Building II every Wednesday. The topic of seminar is mainly round software engineering, model checking, formal methods, model driven development, software testing, etc. Our seminar is open to all faculties and students in our department.

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.
