Unsupervised Learning of design Smells in Software Deploy unsupervised learning techniques to spectrally cluster design smells after mining through different source code repositories.
Software Energy Smell Detection and Analysis

Use state of the art approaches to detect energy smells in software code.

Project/Research Supervision
Level of Study Title Supervisor Co-Supervisor(s) Name of Student(s) Area of Research Current Completion
Ph.D. Unsupervised Machine Learning for Design Smell Analysis in Open Source Java Software Dr. Tevfik Kosar

Software design smells are design attributes which violate the fundamental design principles. Design smells are a key cause of design debt. Although the activities of design smell identification and measurement are predominantly considered in current literature, those which identify and communicate which design smells occur more frequently in newly developing software and which ones are more dominant in established software have been studied to a limited extent.

Current Year
Ph.D. OneDataShare: A Vision for Cloud-hosted Data Transfer Scheduling and Optimization as a Service Dr. Tevfik Kosar

Fast, reliable, and energy-efficient data transmission across wide-area networks is a predominant bottleneck for data-intensive cloud applications. This paper introduces OneDataShare, which is designed to eliminate the issues plaguing effective cloud-based data transfers of varying file sizes and across incompatible transfer end-points.
