Biography

I am currently an assistant professor (ZJU100 Young Professor) in the School of Software Technology at Zhejiang University, China. Before joining Zhejiang University, I was a postdoctoral research fellow at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, working with Prof. Michael R. Lyu. I obtained my Ph.D degree in Computer Science and Technology from Zhejiang University, where I was very fortunate to work under the supervision of Prof. Jianling Sun. During my PhD period, I also had an unforgettable visiting experience at the Australian National University under the supervision of Prof. Zhenchang Xing. My research interests include Software Engineering, Knowledge Graph and Blockchain.
