About me

I am currently a Specially Appointed Assistant Professor in Software Engineering Laboratory under the supervision of Professor Kenichi Matsumoto, Nara Institute of Science and Technology (NAIST). My research interests include empirical software engineering and mining software repositories. In detail, my research is focusing on the security vulnerabilities in software ecosystems, how developers react to vulnerabilities in their software projects. The ultimate goal of my research is to mitigate the risk of security vulnerabilities in software ecosystems.

Interests: Software Quality, Software Ecosystem, Mining Software Repositories, Security Vulnerability, Social Network Data Mining
