I am currently a sixth-year Ph.D student with the Advanced Computing and System Laboratory (CCNT), College of Computer Science & Technology at Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China. My supervisor is Prof. Jian Wu and I am closely collaborating with Prof. Zhou Zhao. I obtained my B.Eng. degree in Software Engineering from Northeastern University, Shenyang, China. My current research interests are mainly focusing on natural language processing and programming language analysis with some advanced techniques such as deep reinforcement learning and generative adversarial learning.
