Dr. LiGuo Huang
I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the Southern Methodist University (SMU). My broad research area is software engineering, with an emphasis on software quality/information dependability and value-based software engineering. I am especially interested in techniques, models and processes for software quality assessment, achievement and improvement during the requirement, architecture design and construction phases of software development; and broadly in software metrics and modeling, process formalization and improvement, software reuse & COTS, software architecture, high dependability computing, software evolution, and empirical software engineering. My primary research goal is to develop metrics, quantitative analysis models to reason about software quality attributes, and to develop process for optimizing software quality achievement during the entire life cycle of software development and maintenance.
