Hi! This is Wei Yang, a PhD student in University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I joined the Automated Software Engineering Research Group in Aug, 2011, under the supervision of Professor Tao Xie. I had been working with Prof. Xie as a PhD student in North Carolina State University for two years before I came to UIUC. Before I came to US, I received my Bachelor's Degree from School of Software, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, advised by Professor Jianjun Zhao. So far I have been studying and working on the automated software engineering technique to facilitate developing and testing mobile application. My primary goal is to use program analysis, specification, verification, testing and debugging techniques to help developers construct and maintain more reliable software system.

 

Research Interests

(Refer to my CV to find more)

·           API Usability, recommendation systems for software engineering.

·           Applying technique in knowledge discovery to software engineering: organizing and exploring facts from structured, semistructured, and textual information sources.
