Dr. Omar Badreddin

Dr. Badreddin is a faculty member at the Computer Science Department at the University of Texas. His research is focused on predicting software evolution using a variety of approaches, including software quality predictive analysis, with the goal of enhancing upfront software designs, and enabling effective continuous design refactoring. This research creates “Digital Twins” to enable the analysis of multiple possible futures for these systems. These Digital Twins can incorporate several aspects of the software system, including, the code structure qualities, the technological environment and technologies, as well the behavior of the engineers designing and developing these systems.

This research entails investigations of the fundamentals of software design and developing of novel approaches and advanced software analytical tools. Dr. Badreddin contributes to the UML standard and key open source projects, including Eclipse, Umple, ModelMine, 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.
