I have obtained my PhD in March 2019. I am on the job market now.
[My Curriculum Vitae]

I am currently a post-doctoral research fellow in the department of Computer Science and Engineering of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST). I have obtained my PhD Thesis Defense successfully in March 2019 from HKUST. During my PhD studies, I was honored and fortunate to be supervised by Prof. Shing-Chi CHEUNG in the CASTLE group. I also had an unforgettable visiting experience at UC, Davis under the supervision of Prof. Zhendong Su. My research interests mainly focus on program analysis, mining software changes, fault localization and program repair.
