I am a PhD student in Institute for Software Research, School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University. Before I came to CMU, I got my B.S. in Computer Science from Peking University.

I am interested in developing software tools, compilers, interpreters and systems to explore variability in highly configurable systems. My advisor is Professor Christian Kästner.



Advisor: Christian Kästner

VarexJ is a variability-aware interpreter for Java(7) bytecode based on Java Pathfinder v7.0. The goal of this project is to provide support for variability-aware execution of normal Java programs.


Advisors: Lu Zhang, Yingfei Xiong

Based on information retrieval techniques, BRTracer tries to find among the entire code base a small subset of source files that are directly related to each bug report.
