I am an associate professor in Software Engineering at the College of Computer Science and Technology (CCST), Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics (NUAA). Prior to that, 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, Assistant Prof. Dr. Tegawendé F. Bissyandé, and Dr. Dongsun Kim.
