Hi Welcome!

I will be joining School of Computing and Information Systems, Singapore Management University (SMU) in Spring 2025 as a Tenure-Track Assistant Professor. I am looking for several fully-funded Ph.D. students and RAs to join my group. Prospective students please refer to Openings🔥.

I received my PhD degree at the Computer Science and Engineering Department of The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) in 2024, advised by Prof. Michael R. Lyu. I received my Bachelor's degree from the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China in 2020. My research focuses on intelligent software engineering, which designs NLP applications for software development, testing, and operations. My current research topics involve code generation, program repair, and AIOps.


  • [2024/07] I am glad to serve on the ICPE'25 program committee member.

Check our LogPub (LogHub 2.0) for a large-scale log parsing benchmark; and (2) Special congratulation to Shiwen, who conducted her work in our undergrad summer visiting program. Feel free to reach out to me if you also want to do cool summer research!
  • [2024/01] Two papers about “LLM for log analysis” are accepted by 2024 FSE Research Track (56/483)! Congratulations to Yichen and Zhihan!
  • [2024/01] One paper about "LLM for programming" is accepted by ICSE-LLM4Code.

Female in CS

As a female scholar in computer science, I hope to see more women involved in this field.

I used to spend one hour per week to help female students with their careers. If you need assistance or someone to talk about CS/PhD application/PhD life/Research/Career etc., please feel free to email me with a brief description of your situation and questions. Both Chinese and English are fine. I will try my best to arrange a 15-min conversation at least. Thank you!
