About

I am an Associate Professor at School of Computer Science, Wuhan University. My research area is software engineering. I am interested in developing automated and semi-automated approaches and techniques that make software development easier and improve software quality, security, and reliability. I am a member of Centre of Software Testing, Analysis and Reliability (CSTAR). Before joining Wuhan University, I was a Postdoctoral Researcher at Georgia Institute of Technology working with Dr. Alex Orso. I received my Ph.D. from Brown University, advised by Dr. Steven Reiss.

I’m looking for highly motivated students at both undergraduate and graduate levels to join my group. If you’re interested, please contact me via email.
