I joined Peking University as a professor of Department of Computer Science and Technology in 2009. Before 2009, I was professor in Academy of Mathematics and System SciencesChinese Academy of Science

I received BS degree from Department of Computer Science of Zhejiang University in 1984 and received MS and PhD degrees from Department of Computer Science of National University of Defense Technology in 1984 and 1992 respectively

I became an assistant professor in 1992, an associate professor in 1995, and a full professor in 2001 in Academy of Mathematics and System SciencesChinese Academy of Science.

I am Fellow of CCF (China Computer Federation),  a senior member of IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers), and a member ACM (Association for Computing Machinery)


My main interest is in knowledge engineering and software engineering in general, and knowledge graphs, self-adaptive systems, and deep learning in particular. I am very interested in knowledge-based software engineering, and I am looking into how human’s domain knowledge is helping to elicit the requirements, to design and implement the systems.

Current Research Interests

  • Self-Adaptive Software in the Human, Cyber-Physical Systems

  • Crowd based Requirements Engineering and Software Development

  • Learning from both the Natural Language and Programming Language
