I am a research scientist in the software engineering application technology lab at Huawei, China. Prior to that, I was an associate professor in Software Engineering at the College of Computer Science and Technology (CCST), Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics (NUAA). Before I joined NUAA, I was a research associate at the University of Luxembourg (UL). I obtained my PhD degree in December 2019 from the Interdisciplinary Security and Trust Centre (SnT), University of Luxembourg, under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Yves Le Traon (IEEE Fellow), Associate Prof. Dr. Tegawendé F. Bissyandé (ERC Fellow), and Dr. Dongsun Kim.
