My research interests include software engineering, programming languages, and security. My research so far mainly focuses on software maintenance and program repair.
I am now visiting CASTLE Lab at HKUST, working with professor Shing-Chi Cheung.
Previously, I worked with Jiajun Jiang and professor Yingfei Xiong on code transformation and automated program repair. Our work has been published on ASE ’19.
In the summer of 2018, I visited Carnegie Mellon University as a research intern. I was very fortunate to work with Shurui Zhou and professor Christian Kästner. Our work has been published on SANER ’19.
