Brief Biography
I was a postdoctoral researcher at SPIRALS Team in INRIA Lille - Nord Europe in France. I co-work with Dr. Martin Monperrus and Prof. Lionel Seinturier. I enjoy the wonderful life and job in INRIA.
I received my PhD degree at OSCAR Lab in Dalian University of Technology in China in April 2013, under supervision with Prof. He Jiang.
I worked for my Bechelor of Science on Software Engineering at School of Software in Dalian University of Technology from 2003, continued with Master of Science on Computer Application Technology at School of Software from 2007, and advanced as a PhD Candidate from 2009. Before university, I was graduated from Harbin No. 3 High School, Harbin, China.
My research interests include Fault Analysis and Repair, Mining Software Repositories, and Search Based Software Engineering.
