Short Bio

Dr. Yutian Chris Tang is an Assistant Professor (UK Lecturer) [University Profile] at the School of Computing Science, University of Glasgow, United Kingdom (PI, Ph.D. Supervisor). He received his Ph.D. degree from the Department of Computing, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, under the supervision of Prof. Xiapu Luo and Dr. Hareton Leung (Emeritus). He received his B.Sc in Computer Science from Jilin University. His research interests include AI+SE (Large-language Model+SE), program analysis, empirical software engineering, privacy protection, and software testing. He is a member of IEEE, CCF, European Alliance for Innovation (EAI), and EuroSys. He is also a member of EPSRC Peer Review College and a technical committee member of the IEEE Technical Committee on Software Engineering. He also contributes to the IEEE Standards Association P1633 Working Group (IEEE Recommended Practice on Software Reliability).

Chris has published over 30 peer-reviewed papers with a total citation of Endpoint Badge at premier software engineering venues such as ICSE, ESEC/FSE, TheWebConf (WWW), ASE, SANER, ISSRE, ICPC conferences, and IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering (TSE), IEEE Transactions on Reliability (TReli), JSS, IST journals. One work received the Best Industry Paper Award at ISSRE'18. Three works reported defects in the Android OS, which are confirmed by the Google Security Team. He serves as an Editorial Board Member for the Frontiers in Computer Science journal and Scientific Programming. He also serves as the PC member of over 10 international conferences such as PLDI, ICSE, ESEC/FSE, ASE, TheWebConf, ICPC, SANER, CAiSE, EASE, SEKE, MSR, APSEC, MobileSoft, VaMoS. His future research plans are directed towards advancing the techniques to automatically test programs and locate bugs, and providing tool support for their applications.
