Biography

My research interests are in Software Engineering and Machine Learning. My research focus is on the program repair, continuous integration (CI), and bug localization. Currently, I am working on different large language models (e.g.,
Codebert, GraphCodebert, CodeT5) to solve different software engineering problems like program repair, and understanding the prediction reasons of LLM technique.
