I am now a research fellow in Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore. Before that, I spent five years (2011-2016) in East China Normal University (ECNU), Shanghai, China, to pursue my Ph.D in computer science, and was surpervised by Prof. Jifeng He and Prof. Geguang Pu. I also had one-year memorable visit (2014-2015) in University of California, Davis (UCD), USA, and was advised by Prof. Zhendong Su. Now, I work with Prof. Yang Liu in Cyber Security Lab (CSL) in NTU. My research focuses on developing effective methodologies, techniques and tools to improve software quality and reliability.
