Research Interests

My research lies within Software Engineering and Computer Systems. In particular, I seek to address the following research questions:

  • Can we verify if the system under test can handle millions of concurrent requests in the field?
  • How can we leverage big-data infrastructures to analyze gigabytes or terabytes of system data (logs and counters)?
  • What can we learn from the past software development history (e.g., source code and bug repositories) to help software developers and managers?

You can check out my publication to know more about my research.
