Personal profile

Biography

I am a 2020 ARC DECRA Fellow, and a lecturer (equivalent to U.S. assistant professor) at the Faculty of Information Technology, Monash University, Australia. Prior to joining Monash University, I was a post-doctoral research fellow in the software practices lab at the University of British Columbia in Canada, with a specialization in software analytics and mining software repositories. My advisors are Prof. Gail C. Murphy and Prof. Reid Holmes. From 2014 to 2017, I was a research assistant professor at College of Computer Science and Technology, Zhejiang University, China.

I got my Ph.D degree in June 2014 from College of Computer Science and Technology, Zhejiang University, China. I was very fortunate to work under the supervision of Prof. Xiaohu Yang, and Prof. Jianling Sun. From July, 2012 to January,2014, I was a visiting student of Prof. David Lo in Singapore Management Universiy.

To help developers and testers improve their productivity, my current research focuses on data science for software engineering, i.e., mining and analyzing rich data in software repositories to uncover interesting and actionable information. I have employed and customized structured and unstructured data analytics techniques – including data mining, information retrieval, natural language processing, search-based algorithms, and program analysis – to transform passive software engineering data into automated tools and new insights.
