Our research is centered around software engineering. We consider software engineering as a unique perspective of computing research. This perspective represents the quest to answer one of the 5 Deep Questions in Computing, namely "how can we build complex systems simply?". We invent techniques and build systems to support learning, working, healthcare, and complex business process.
We believe that this quest requires an integral vision of human, techniques, and systems in software engineering research. Our research currently focuses on three interrelated topics: human-centric computing, complex system modeling and simuation, and reliable and secure system operation.
Our research is empirical and multi-disciplinary. To solve challenging problems in building complex system, we investigate and incorporate theories and practices from multiple areas of computer sciences, such as interaction design, data mining, formal methods, cloud computing, and agent-based modeling.
