I am a Ph.D. student at the School of Computing, Queen's University in Canada.
I work under the supervision of Dr. Ahmed E. Hassan, in the Software Analysis and Intelligence Lab (SAIL). My research interests include machine learning applications in software engineering, empirical software engineering, and software repository mining.
I graduated with BS in Physics from Special Class for Gifted Young (SCGY) at University of Science and Technology of China (USTC), earned my MSc in Electrical Engineering (2010) and PhD in Physics (2013) under Dr. Michael Stavola from Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Before I came to Queen's University, I was a physicist conducting R&D in diamond color enhancement at IDC Group in New York City (2013-2015), and a postdoctoral research fellow conducting research in atomic clock and ultrafast laser under the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) contract at the University of South Florida/National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (2015-2017) in Florida.
