I am an assistant professor at the CSE Department of SUSTech. My research interests include software testing and analysis, empirical software engineering, cyber-physical systems, mobile computing, and cybersecurity. I obtained my B.Sc. degree in Computer Science with honor from Nanjing University in 2010, and my Ph.D. degree in Computer Science and Engineering from HKUST in 2015. Prior to joining SUSTech, I worked at the CASTLE Lab and Cybersecurity Lab of HKUST as a postdoc, under the supervision of Prof. Shing-Chi Cheung and Prof. Charles Zhang. If you want to know more about me, here is an article, but in Chinese only.

I am looking for self-motivated students and postdocs. Please send me emails with your CV if you are interested in my projects and have relevant background (strong programming skills are required, NLP and machine learning experiences are a plus). See the job ad here.
