About Me

I am a Ph.D. student in Computer Software and Theory at School of Computer Science, Peking University, advised by Prof.Minghui Zhou at Open Source Software Data Analytics Lab. Prior to this, I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Software Engineering from Soochow University in 2022, where I was mentored by Prof. Xiaofang Zhang. My research interests mainly focus on open-source license compliance issues in open-source software ecosystems and supply chains.
