Yuqun Zhang's main research interests lie in Software Engineering, and its synergy with Machine Learning and Programming Languages. He has published over 30 research papers, winning one ACM SIGSOFT Distinguished Paper Award (2019). His research has helped detect hundreds of bugs for open-source projects from Apache and GitHub, as well as commercial products from Alipay and Kwai where his work on fuzzing, taint analysis, and program analysis has been successfully deployed with million lines of code and over 1 billion global users. To date, his research has been supported by various agencies including Natural Science Foundation of China.

We are hiring research assistant professors and PostDocs. We are also looking for PhD students with strong academic background in Software Engineering, Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing, Programming Languages, or Formal Methods. Please send me an email (with your CV).
