Nan Li is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Computer Science of the Volgenau School of Information Technology and Engineering at George Mason University. He received his M.S. in Computer Science from Fairleigh Dickinson University in New Jersey in 2008. Before that, he received a B.E. in Software Engineering from Beihang University in 2006. His current research interests include mutation testing, model-based testing, and test automation. His advisor is Dr.Jeff Offutt.
