Software Engineering


Software Engineering, Empirical Software Engineering, Mining Software Repositories, Power Consumption Analysis


The focus of my research is the evidence-based study of software development. My field of research depends upon statistics, data mining, social network analysis, machine learning, NLP, signal processing, visualization, and software engineering. With respect to software engineering my research focuses on empirical software engineering, mining software repositories, software development processes, software maintenance, and software metrics. Other interests include computer music, music information retrieval, computer vision, programming languages, and computer security.
