Dr. Badreddin is a faculty member at the Computer Science Department at the University of Texas. His research is focused on understanding the fundamentals of software design with the goal of improving software maintainability and sustainability. The research involves applications of VR, AI, and Machine Learning to Software Engineering problems. He contributes to the UML standard and key open source projects, including Eclipse, Umple and Susereum. His research explores opportunities to reduce software and data complexities, and the complexity of the tools used for software development and data management. This involves exploration of novel design languages and methodologies and investigations to evaluate their effectiveness. This research often results in direct contributions to software design and modeling tools, such as Papyrus. His recent research investigates data-intensive systems and research software.
