Hi, I am Dayi, a passionate data science and software engineering researcher 🙂

I received my Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from Queen’s University, Canada. My research interests include Data Science, Empirical Software Engineering, and Mining Software Repositories (MSR, which applies Data Science and Machine Learning techniques to solve Software Engineering problems). My Ph.D. thesis is about mining online game stores data, more specifically, mining data from Steam, the dominant online distribution platform for PC games, to improve user-perceived quality of games.

I received my education across China, Germany, and Canada, and have worked in different industries ranging from automotive, eCommerse, PC Gaming, to education. These experiences give me the ability to adapt to a multicultural environment and get along well with people from different backgrounds.
