Short Bio

I am currently a research postgraduate student in CASTLE group, pursuing my Ph.D degree under the supervision of Prof. S.C. Cheung at HKUST. My research interests include but not limited to software analysis and testing, mining code repositories. My current work focuses on taming compatibility issues brought by Android fragmentation.

I obtained my B.Sc. degree in the department of Computer Science and Technology at Nanjing University (2011-2015).
