Research Interests

My research interest includes: methods, tools, and theories for the construction of manageable, reliable, efficient, configurable, and evolvable software systems, ranging from embedded systems to large-scale systems. In particular, I am interested in:

  • Software Engineering (software quality, maintainability, variability, evolution, feature interactions, domain-specific optimization, software metrics, and bad smells)
  • Social Networks (analysis and mining social networks to understand users’ behavior, problems and trends, developers’ social networks understanding)
  • Programming Methods (feature orientation, generative techniques, and modularity)
  • Empirical Methods (program comprehension and the human factor
