Research

My primary fields of interest are systems and software engineering, specifically in unorthodox modeling to measure and improve software quality using natural language processing.

Current research interests:
  • Software quality synergy and conflict
  • Software quality measurement
  • Non-functional requirement
  • Applied NLP in software quality measurement
