I am currently a professor in the Department of Computer Science and Technology at Nanjing University. I received my Ph.D. degree in computer science from Southeast University in 2003. From January 2003 to December 2004, I was a researcher at Tsinghua University. From February 2005 to February 2008, I was a researcher at Hong Kong Polytechnic University. My research interests focus on software engineering, especially on defect prediction, software testing, and program analysis. If you are interested in our group, please contact me.
