I am currently an Assistant Researcher at Department of Computer Science and Technology, Nanjing University. I am also part of the Group in Software Testing (GIST). My current research interest lies in the area of Fault localization, Combinatorial testing, Software Testing, Software Repair.

I received my PhD degree from Nanjing University in June 2019, under the supervision of Professor Changhai Nie, and BSc from Nanjing University of Science and Technology in June 2011. I have been a visiting student at the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA) in 2016, under the supervision of Professor Lei yu. I have been a research assistant at University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) from September 2015 to April 2016, where I worked with Professor Xiaoyin Wang.

I am looking for students who are interested in Software testing. Please feel free to drop me an email.

对软件测试方向感兴趣的同学,欢迎随时邮件联系。
