Name MASUDA Satoshi
Official Title Professor
Affiliation Information Systems, Informatics
Profile Masuda had been working in an IT company and experienced developing information systems for clients. He has also been researching for software engineering, especially software testing and published papers and patents. Based on his background, we, Prof. Masuda laboratory, are working for software engineering to contribute for developing high quality software efficiently to solve social challenges. Many new technologies and methodologies for software have been developed, however, they are required contribution in real cases. We are tackling problems in wide area, such as testing autonomous-driving car, using natural language processing for requirement engineering and data science in enterprise systems.
Research Field(Keyword & Summary)
  1. Software Engineering and Data Science

    This research aims for efficiency and quality in processing tasks of data science.

  2. Software Testing

    Software testing has been always required to verify and validate the software, even if we bring any new technologies and methodologies. We are working for efficient software testing for every software.
