My primary research area of interest lies in software engineering. I have worked in many interdisciplinary projects involving software engineering and several fields (e.g., High-Performance computing, Mathematics, Cloud computing, Artificial intelligence) to improve design, development, and maintenance of software. I carefully 1) analyzed existing tool support 2) proposed new solutions, and 3) determined advantages and disadvantages of the proposed approach compared to the existing tools in the relevant area. My Ph.D dissertation is based on applying software modeling techniques to computation intensive problems for heterogeneous computing and improved source code maintenance. I am currently supported by a grant from Air Force/AFRL STTR, which I helped Dr. Jeff Gray in preparing and submitting. Much of the work for this grant is part of my Ph.D. thesis. Based on our performance in Phase I, we have been invited to submit proposal for Phase II. I completed my Master’s thesis on providing tool support for software code clones.
