About Me

I am a third-year Ph.D. student supervised by Prof. Jingling Xue at School of Computer Science and Engineering, University of New South Wales (UNSW Sydney). I received my B.Eng degree in Software Engineering from Northwestern Polytechnical University (NPU) in 2014. I started pursuing my Ph.D. in March 2015.

Research Interest

Currently, my research interests are static program analysis, Android analysis, software engineering and programming languages. Besides, I have great interest in computer vision.

I am a junior researcher, but I really enjoy the Eureka moments. I am really glad to present insightful, inspired and practical work during my Ph.D. study.
