Welcome from the Director

Welcome to my research group’s site, which serves as one of our primary ways to communicate with you the work that we are doing to help make software development and maintenance easier, faster, and more fun.


The Spider Lab at University of California, Irvine consists of researchers committed to enabling the automation of many software engineering tasks to reduce their costs, while improving the software’s quality.

Specifically, the Spider Lab is dedicated to improving the quality of software and the efficiency with which it is developed and maintained. The research areas of software analysis, testing, and visualization are utilized to enable software developers to fathom the complex interior workings of their software, specifically for finding and fixing software bugs.
