Bowen Xu is a Research Scientist (Post-Doc) in the School of Computing and Information Systems (SCIS) at Singapore Management University (SMU). He got his PhD in 2022 from SCIS at SMU, supervised by Prof. David Lo (IEEE Fellow). His research area is software engineering. Particularly, his research interests lie in machine learning and software engineering. The aims of his works are to improve software quality and developers’ productivity. He has published his works in both top-tier software engineering conferences (ICSE, FSE, ASE) and journals (TSE, TOSEM, EMSE). One of his works is nominated for ACM SIGSOFT Distinguished Paper Award (top 10% among all accepted submissions) for ASE 2022 (Core A*). Besides, another piece of his works published in ESEM 2018 (Core A) has won the Highly Commended Full Paper Award (the 2nd best among all accepted submissions). Two of his works published in ICPC 2022 (Core A) and MSR 2016 (Core A) with high scores have been invited extended to the journal EMSE.
