Hi there! I am currently an assistant professor in Key Laboratory of Parallel and Distributed Computing (PDL), National University of Defense Technology (NUDT), China.
My main research interest is empirical software engineering, spanning from mining software repositories and social networks, to Docker and CI/CD workflows.
I like movie, music, and photography.
