Short Bio

I am a Ph.D. student at Northeastern University, under the supervision of Prof. Zhiliang Zhu and Prof. Hai Yu. From January 2018 to April 2018, I was a visiting scholar at the CASTLE Lab of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST), under the supervision of Prof. Shing-Chi Cheung. My research interests are mainly in software refactoring, software testing, software reliability and complex network theory. I am greatly interested in analyzing the software system from its topological structure viewpoint. With the help of the abstract structural view, we can “navigate” the system and optimize the software testing or refactoring process. Using the static and dynamic characteristics of “software network”, we evaluate the complexity, risk factors, and reliability of system, and find the near-optimal solutions to software engineering problems.
