Research Interests

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

  • Can we leverage data analytics and machine learning to improve the quality of computing platforms in a cost-effective manner?
  • What can we learn from various software engineering data sources (e.g., code repositories and bug reports) to improve the productivity of software developers and managers?
  • How do we re-think the software development process for machine learning-based systems?

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