I am broadly interested in the area of Software Engineering, Programming Languages, Systems, Security, and Data Mining. I have been spending substantial efforts on software mining, program analysis, code search & reuse, program comprehension & generation, aiming to provide practical techniques and tools for enhancing software reliability, increasing development productivity, reducing maintenance cost, and improving user experience.

Context-Aware Software Mining and Analysis

A general theme of my work is mining and analysis for software engineering, such as detection of code clones, code query processing, detection of bugs, search for bug fixes, deep learning of code, search for better testing & debugging techniques, and protect user data in software.

The search is being carried out on various contextual data sources in addition to program code itself, such as code change histories, program bug databases, test suites, developer activities, user feedbacks, and socio-technical information pertaining to the complex interactions between people and technologies in both software development processes and real-world usage scenarios.

To enable the extraction of information from various data sources and to enable efficient search and analysis, various technologies are being employed, such as static & dynamic program analysis, software engineering methodologies, data mining, machine learning, information retrieval, natural language processing, and distributed computing techniques.

Scalable Code Clone Detection and Analysis

Our studies and others' have noticed that on average more than 20% of code in large programs is cloned code, which often leads to higher maintenance cost and subtle software defects. The goal of our research is to scalably and accurately detect various code clones, track their evolutions and migrations among large programs, and manage them properly to facilitate program understanding and reengineering. Many applications, such as code refactoring, bug detection, and plagiarism detection, can stem from code clone detection and analysis.
