AdVanced Empirical Software Testing & Analysis (AVESTA)

About the AVESTA Group

The AdVanced Empirical Software Testing & Analysis (AVESTA) research group focuses on conducting research in software testing, empirical software engineering, and application of statistical analysis to program analysis. The group was founded in the Department of Computer Science at Texas Tech University in August 2009.

Current Projects

Several research projects are active with their focus on the following areas:

  • Application of online learning with major focus on Bayesian analysis to program analysis.
  • The role of coverage on fault coverage.
  • Mutation testing & analysis.
  • Adaptive random testing.
  • Testing multi−core and multi−threaded systems.
  • Probablistic model checking.
