In general, my research is concerned with empirical software engineering and in particular mining software repositories. Analyzing historic and current development datasets it is possible to develop models and methods to predict, isolate, and prevent causes of software defects and long-term cause-effect chains in the software development processes. It is my strong believe that there is rich knowledge hidden in each software repository that can make developers, testers, and quality manager more productive and effective.
Currently, I am assessing the current test and verification infrastructures and process at Microsoft. Goal is to work with individual product groups to propose optimizations to make Microsoft's testing and verification process more effective and efficient without sacrificing code quality.
