About Me

I have moved. Please visit my new homepage.

I am a Computing Innovation Fellow (CIFellow) and will join University of Massachusetts Amherst (UMass) from Jan 2021! I just finished my Ph.D. in Computer Science from University of Southern California (USC). My primary research community is Software Engineering. I am very fortunate to be advised by Dr. Nenad Medvidović throughout my Ph.D., which raised my interest in pursuing an academic career. I enjoy solving important and interesting problems with broad research interests (knowledge has no boundaries, right? :)). Prior to USC, I received my Bachelor’s degree in Software Engineering from Harbin Institute of Technology (HIT) in China, advised by Dr. Zhongjie Wang (王忠杰).

Interests

  • Mobile Applications
  • Program Analysis
  • Software Testing
  • Software Architecture
  • Open Science :)

Education

  • PhD in Computer Science, 2020

    University of Southern California, USA

  • BEng in Software Engineering, 2014

    Harbin Institute of Technology, China

[Dec 2020] Our paper was rejected from ICSE 2021… Heh

[Nov 2020] My PhD dissertation Reducing user-perceived latency in mobile applications via prefetching and caching is published now! If the title doesn't interest you that much, go to the Conclusion section where I also discuss Software Testing and Open Science! Cool stuff :)

[Nov 2020] FrUITeR‘s presentations are available now! I am also serving on the panel at ESEC/FSE 2020. Hit me up!

[Oct 2020] I have successfully defended my Ph.D. thesis! I'm Dr. Zhao now!

[Sep 2020] FrUITeR‘s pre-print and artifacts are available online now. Check it out!
