About me

I really enjoy researching on software engineering, my goal is to create useful and interesting stuff!

I am currently a PhD candidate in the 3rd year from the School of Information System of the Singapore Management University (SMU), supervised by Prof. David Lo. Before I joined SMU, I received my Master Degree of Engineering in June 2017 from the Colloge of Computer Science and Technology of Zhejiang University, supervised by Prof. Shanping Li and Prof. Xin Xia.
