Hi, I am Dayi, a passionate researcher in the interdisciplinary domain of software engineering and AI.

I am currently a Principle Researcher at the Centre for Software Excellence, Huawei Canada, leading the research on software engineering for AI-based software systems. I received my Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from Software Analysis and Intelligence Lab (SAIL Lab), Queen’s University, Canada. My research interests include Empirical Software Engineering, Game Engineering, AI for Software Engineering, and Software Engineering for AI Systems. My Ph.D. thesis is about using data science and machine learning to improve the user-perceived quality of PC games.

As an experienced researcher with a solid engineering background, I believe in the value of combining rigorous scientific methodologies with robust engineering practices. Apart from my academic research, I have also worked in multiple industries including eCommerce, telecommunications, automotive, gaming, and education.

You can find out more about my research here, and contact me here. I’m also active on various social media (linked on this page) so feel free to follow my adventures there!
