About Me

Kazuhiro Yamashita

I am a graduate student at the Principle of Software Languages (POSL) in the Graduate School and Faculty of Information Science and Electrical Engineering at Kyushu University in Fukuoka, Japan.

I am currently pursuing my PhD degree under the supervision of Professor Naoyasu Ubayashi and Associate Professor Yasutaka Kamei.

My research interests include: software engineering, data mining, mining software repositories (MSR).
