I am an assistant professor in the College of Computer Science and Technology at Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics (NUAA). I received my Ph.D. degree from the School of Software of Dalian University of Technology in 2018 supervised by Prof. He Jiang. I received my B.S. degree from the School of Software of Dalian University of Technology in 2012. From May, 2014 to August, 2014, I worked as a research assistant with Prof. David Lo in the School of Information Systems at Singapore Management University.

My research interests include Software Data Analytics and Mining Software Repository. The goal of my research is to analyze the current software development and to improve the development productivity with artificial intelligence techniques. By exploring software data, I analyze the existing development process, identify problems in software development, design algorithms, and evaluate results with software tools. In my research, I extend and develop machine learning, data mining, and natural language processing techniques to uncover the interesting information in real-world software.
