Research Assistant, Department of Computer Science, University of Texas at Dalla s, 2004 to 2008. Joined for an excellent opportunity to expand software engineer ing repertoire through research and collaboration/interaction with a large/innov ative research group, and quench thirst for knowledge and challenge. * Developed a Call Arrival Prediction Model for the given incoming call data us ing Survivability Analysis/Reliability Theory, and Parzen-window non-parametric model. * Developed Kalman filter using Linear Control Systems Theory for software defe cts data to reduce noise contributed by various actors in different phases of li fe cycle. Modeled and analyzed correlation among consecutive software defect dat a points. * Developed a Stochastic State Space model of software testing process called D efects Decay * Model that captures S-shaped behavior of defect data and accounts for noise i n testing process to predict software defects. * Developed Bayesian defect prediction technique, BayesED3M, that uses prior in formation in the form of software metrics from different phases of software life cycle, extracted from historical data. BayesED3M is the first complete solution that provides a detailed method for prior information extraction and a Bayesian estimator to utilize the prior information, to overcome the effect of noise in testing process. * Performed Statistical Analysis of software metrics to determine correlation w ith software defects. Used different clustering algorithms to group similar proj ects. Reduced dimension explosion through Principal Component Analysis. * Developed a Maximum Likelihood based software defect estimator ED3M which rea ches in the accuracy range of 98% to 102%. ED3M is a turn-key solution that runs on single input software defect data from ongoing testing. Detailed performance evaluation is carried out by creating over 1000 simulations in Matlab to analyz e results when defect data departs from normal S-shaped behavior, the results pr oved the resilience of technique. * Industry adapted ED3M very well, owing to the ease of use and remarkable resu lts. Compliments from industry are available at http://www.linkedin.com/in/syedw aseemhaider . * Reported results in leading Software Engineering Journal, IEEE Transactions o n Software Engineering (TSE), presented research findings in conference and work shop. * Completed a comprehensive survey on existing Defect Prediction and Software R eliability models. Classified models according to Non-parametric, Parametric and Bayesian and Regression techniques. Study is reported in a leading journal, Sof

tware Testing, Verification and Reliability (STVR). * Guest Lectured classes for Software Testing, Verification and Validation; and Introduction to Probability theory.
