I am a Research Fellow at University College London (UCL), working with Prof. Mark Harman and Prof. Federica Sarro. I received my Ph.D. from Peking University (PKU), and was fortunate to be advised by Prof. Hong Mei and Prof. Xuanzhe Liu. My Ph.D dissertation won the Outstanding Doctoral Dissertation Award of China Computer Federation. I received my B.S. in Computer Science and B.A. in Economics from Peking University (PKU).

My research interests mainly focus on Responsible AI, Software Engineering for AI, and AI for Software Engineering.
