Zhixing Li (李志星)

Hi there! I am currently a PH.D. candidate of Software Engineering at National University of Defense Technology (NUDT). I got my Master degree from NUDT in 2017. Before that, I got my B.E. degree from Chongqing University (CQU) in 2015.

My main research interest is software engineering, spanning from mining software repositories and open source communities, analyzing social code reviews and software crowdsourcing.
