I am an assistant professor at the CSE Department of SUSTech. I lead the Software Quality Lab. My research interests mainly 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.

We are hiring research assistant professors and postdocs. We are also looking for PhD students with strong programming skills and good English ability. Please send me an email with your CV if you are interested and have relevant background. For undergraduate students who are interested in joining our group, please send me a copy of your transcript.
