Dr. Hao Zhong
Department of Computer Science and Engineering
Shanghai Jiao Tong University
I received my Ph.D degree from Peking University in 2009. My Ph.D dissertation was nominated for the distinguished Ph.D dissertation award of China Computer Federation. My PhD advisor is Prof. Hong Mei, and was co-advised by Prof. Lu Zhang and Prof. Tao Xie. After graduation, I joined Institute of Software, Chinese Academy of Sciences as an assistant professor, and was promoted as an associated professor in 2011. From 2012 to 2014, I was a visiting scholar with University of California, Davis, where I worked with Prof. Zhendong Su. In 2014, I joined Shanghai Jiao Tong University. I am a recipient of ACM SIGSOFT Distinguished Paper Award, the best paper award of ASE, and the best paper award of APSEC.
Please submit your high-quality research papers to ICST 2023, SANER 2023, ICSE 2023, ESEC/FSE 2023, and ICSE 2024.
Prospective Master and PhD Students: Please contact me, if you are a self-motivated student with strong programming skills and interested in software engineering and its related research topics.
My research interests include empirical software engineering, software maintenance, and mining software engineering data, with emphasis on the following themes:
