Bio

Guanping Xiao is an assistant professor of the College of Computer Science and Technology in Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics (NUAA), China. He obtained his Ph.D. degree from Beihang University (BUAA), China, in January 2020. His Ph.D. advisor is Prof. Zheng Zheng. From September to December 2018, he was a visiting student at School of Computer Science, University of Technology Sydney (UTS), where he was under supervision of Yulei Sui.

His 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 bug reports), with the aim of improving software quality and reliability.
