He is also a joint student of the [Advanced Software Technologies (AST) Lab](https://ast.inf.ethz.ch) at [ETH Zurich](https://ethz.ch/en), co-advised by [Prof. Zhendong Su](https://people.inf.ethz.ch/suz). His research interests span software engineering and programming languages, especially compiler and language virtual machine testing, program synthesis, and Android app testing. He is now working on fuzzing the JIT compilers of modern language virtual machines like JVM (HotSpot, OpenJ9, etc.). Feel free to drop him an email if you are interested in fuzzing language virtual machines like JVMs and JavaScript engines. Room: 812, Building of Computer Science and Technology
Address: Nanjing University, Xianlin Boulevard 163, Nanjing, China
Email: congli # smail.nju.edu.cn Open Contributions =================================================================== His research has actively contributed to the JVM community and received thanks from HotSpot's and OpenJ9's JIT complier teams. Specifically, he has found 60+ JIT compiler bugs in four widely-used production JVMs, namely HotSpot, OpenJ9, Graal, and the Android Runtime (ART), where 50+ have been confirmed or fixed. The following lists some selected JIT compiler bugs that he found: - HotSpot: [JDK-8287223](https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8287223), [JDK-8290781](https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8290781), [JDK-8293996](https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8293996), [JDK-8289043](https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8289043), [JDK-8288975](https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8288975), etc. - OpenJ9: [15305](https://github.com/eclipse-openj9/openj9/issues/15305), [15319](https://github.com/eclipse-openj9/openj9/issues/15319), [15335](https://github.com/eclipse-openj9/openj9/issues/15335), [15369](https://github.com/eclipse-openj9/openj9/issues/15369), [15338](https://github.com/eclipse-openj9/openj9/issues/15338), etc. - ART: [227382489](https://issuetracker.google.com/issues/227382489), [229134124](https://issuetracker.google.com/issues/229134124), [230079540](https://issuetracker.google.com/issues/230079540), [230635320](https://issuetracker.google.com/issues/230635320), etc. - Graal: [4754](https://github.com/oracle/graal/issues/4754), etc. Education =================================================================== Visiting
