Welcome to my home page!
I am a PhD candidate at CSDL of ICS UH Manoa studying under the supervision of Professor Philip M Johnson. My defense is prescheduled for early 2015 and I am currently looking for an industrial or academic postdoctoral opportunity, my short resume is available here.
My graduate research is focused on the understanding of software development processes. Specifically, I am exploring the possibility of an offline software process discovery via mining of software repositories. For my dissertation research, I have hypothesized that characteristic recurrent behaviors (which are the basic building blocks of software processes) can be discovered by the application of a systematic data mining to software artifact measurements. Investigating this hypothesis, I have developed a novel algorithm for interpretable time series classification, which enables the software process-characteristic behaviors discovery.
Currently, while finishing the school, I am increasingly involved in the development of temporal data mining techniques. Recently, we have proposed a novel technique for time series patterns discovery that is built upon symbolic discretization and grammatical inference mechanisms. In addition to this, I am working as a bioinformatics software engineer "bridging" two research laboratories: MIAT and L'IPREM, where I am responsible for the design and implementation of NGS data mining tools used in a research project concerned with the structure and function of microbial communities in marine sediment (FUNHYMAT).
Previously, I have worked in a number of research laboratories supporting and performing genomics research. In 3SR project, I was responsible for the identification and annotation of SNPs in sheep genome; at ENSAT, I was involved in the identification of genes involved in the fruit ripening; at INRIA Rennes I have designed and implemented a high-throughput sequence classification pipeline for G protein-coupled receptors (GPRs) based on the finite state machines. I also worked for LANL, DOE-JGI on NGS sequencing data analysis and genome finishing, and for RCUH, Hawaii on the transgenic papaya genome assembly.
