Bio

I am a fifth-year Ph.D. student with the Depintelligence Software Lab, School of Automation Science and Electrical Engineering, Beihang University (BUAA), China. My supervisor is Prof. Zheng Zheng. During my Ph.D. studies, I was a visiting student at the School of Computer Science, University of Technology Sydney (UTS), Australia under the supervision of Dr. Yulei Sui. Previously, I received my bachelor degree from Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics (NUAA) in 2012 and master degree from Civil Aviation University of China (CAUC) in 2015.

My current research interest focuses on interdisciplinary studies in (empirical) software engineering, such as using network science for exploring latent and interesting patterns in the evolution of software systems, using deep learning for mining software repositories (e.g., codes, commits, and bugs).
