Huaien Zhang

CS PhD Candidate@PolyU, Focus on PL/SE/SEC


Hey, my name is Huaien Zhang. I am a CS PhD Candidate at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University advised by Dr. Yu Pei and Dr. Shin Hwei Tan. I also work closely with Dr. Yuqun Zhang. Previously, I achieved a master degree of computer software engineering from Fudan University in 2021.

Currently, I am interested in Software Engineering and Programming Language. Specifically, I foucs on applying various techniques such as static analysis and fuzzing to recognize potential bugs, vulnerabilities, and privacy leakage in software systems. I am also exploring some new ideas in SE for Web3 and AI to catch up the trend…=_=
