My research interests include Software Data Analytics and Mining Software Repository.

The goal of my research is to analyze the current software development and to improve the development productivity with artificial intelligence techniques. By exploring software data, I analyze the existing development process, identify problems in software development, design algorithms, and evaluate results with software tools. In my research, I extend and develop machine learning, data mining, and natural language processing techniques to uncover the interesting information in real-world software.

In particular, I focus on the following three research topics:

  1. In Mining Bug Reports, my work addresses summarizing bug reports to help bug report comprehension;
  2. In Mobile Application Analysis, my work addresses recommending new features from mobile application descriptions to support domain analysis;
  3. In API Documentation Analysis, my work addresses discovering key knowledge, enriching API documentation, and recommending relevant documentation fragments for APIs to enhance API learning.
