Advancing Reliability, Safety & Security in Software Engineering

We study the principles of computing and the phenomena of software developments to understand when, where, why and how unreliable, insecure, or unsafe software is resulted and threatening in our society. We aim to resolve these problems by developing techniques, tools, methodologies and pedagogies that enhance the ability of developers in analyzing, testing, and debugging their software products.
