I examinded the link between software quality and user reviews during my master’s. This was really interesting because it involved doing static analysis on code which is very objective and comparing that with user feedback which is really subjective. Overall, I have published over 9 papers and have received over 400 citations for my work.
I focused on the following set of problems for the actual thesis:
What Do Mobile App Users Complain About?
Prioritizing The Devices To Test Your App On: A Case Study Of Android Game Apps
Examining the Relationship between FindBugs Warnings and End User Ratings: A Case Study On 10,000 Android Apps
