Feng Zhang

I'm a Ph.D gradudated from School of Computing at Queen's University. Dr. Ying(Jenny) Zou is my supervisor. My research interests include Software Engineering, Mining Software Repositories, Empirical Software Engineering, and Source Code Analysis. I have been proudly collaborating with Dr. Ahmed E. Hassan, Dr. Audris Mockus, Dr. Foutse Khomh, Dr. Shane McIntosh, Dr. Emad Shihab, and many other great researchers.

I'm on the job market now.
