Software Systems Lab

I am actively looking for MS and PhD students as well as Post Docs. If you are interested in my research, please feel free to contact me with CV (

Research Interests
My research interests lie in creating innovative software solutions that can facilitate the development and evolution of complex Computer Systems. Specifically, my research explores how a combination of novel software system architectures, automated software tools, and empirically derived programming guidelines can assist the programmer in developing and optimizing modern software, especially in the area of Mobile Computing. Thus, my work is on the Systems end of Software Engineering, spanning Distributed SystemsMobile ApplicationsEnergy-Efficient Software, and Automated Program Transformation
