I am a second year M. Sc. student in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Saskatchewan. I am part of the Software Research Lab and working under the supervision of Dr. Chanchal Roy and Dr. Kevin A. Schneider.
Due to the advancement of technology, writing source code is no longer the difficult part of software development. Rather, maintenance and evolution of software becomes the intractable part, often characterized as the two most inevitable activities. My interest grows on this area due to the exposure to these issues during my graduate study. My research focuses on the development of techniques and tools to help developers to understand and manage their source code more meaningfully. Currently, I am working on code clone analysis, an integral part of software maintenance activities.
News: Our clone analysis tool VisCad is now available to use.
