I am a tenured associate professor at Tianjin University. My research focuses on software security, specifically within the domain of software supply chain security. Within this area, I emphasize the code security of software supply chain, particularly in terms of detecting and verifying vulnerabilities.

Before that, I was a research assistant professor@Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, and worked in the group of Prof. LIU Yang. I was a research fellow (2019-2020) and a research assistant (2016-2019) at NTU.

  I received 5 ACM SIGSOFT Distinguished Paper Awards (ICSE 2018, ICSE 2021, ASE 2022, ICSE 2023, ASE 2023), 1 First Class of Progress of Science and Technology Prize of Tianjin 2020, and 1 ACM China Rising Star Award (ACM Tianjin Council) 2022.
