W. Eric Wong


Professor
Director of Outreach &
Director of Advanced Research Center for Software Testing and Quality Assurance

W. Eric Wong received his B.S. in Computer Science from Eastern Michigan University, and his M.S. and Ph.D. in Computer Science from Purdue University. In addition to his positions at UTD, Professor Wong has an appointment as a Guest Researcher from NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology), an agency of the U.S. Department of Commerce. Prior to joining UTD, he was with Telcordia (Bellcore - formerly part of AT&T Bell Labs) as a Senior Research Scientist and the project manager in charge of the initiative for Dependable Telecom Software Development.

Professor Wong's research focus is on the technology to help practitioners improve the quality of software while reducing the cost of development at the same time. In particular, he is working on software testing, debugging, risk analysis/metrics, safety, and reliability. Professor Wong has very strong experience developing real-life industry applications of his research results. Since 2002, as PI or Co-PI, he has received research funding from such organizations as NSF, NASA, NIST, Avaya, IBM, Texas Instruments, Raytheon, Lockheed Martin Aeronautics, HP, NEC (Nippon Electric Company), and Hyundai Motor Company among others.

Professor Wong is the IEEE Reliability Society Engineer of the Year for 2014, one of the most prestigious awards by the society. He is also a recipient of the Quality Assurance Special Achievement Award from Johnson Space Center, NASA (1997) and two Best Paper Awards from COMPSAC (2007) and ACM SAC (2011). He is currently serving as the Vice President for Publications of the IEEE Reliability Society, and is the Founding Steering Committee Chair of the IEEE International Conference on Software Security and Reliability (SERE). He was the Vice President for Technical Activities (2012-2013) and the Secretary (2014) of the IEEE Reliability Society, and the Secretary of ACM SIGAPP (Special Internet Group on Applied Computing) for two consecutive terms (2009-2013). Professor Wong is on the editorial board of several journals including IEEE Transactions on Reliability (T-Rel) and the Journal of Systems and Software (JSS). He has served or is serving as special issue guest editor for T-Rel, JSS, SPE, IST, SQJ, IJSEKE, etc., and general or program chair for many international conferences such as ISSRE, COMPSAC, QSIC, SERE, and SEKE.

Lingming Zhang


Assistant Professor

Lingming Zhang obtained his Ph.D. degree from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering in the University of Texas at Austin in May 2014. He received his MS degree and BS degree in Computer Science from Peking University (2010) and Nanjing University (2007), respectively.

His research interests lie broadly in software engineering and programming languages, including automated program analysis, testing, debugging, and verification, as well as software evolution and mobile computing. He has authored 20 papers in premier software engineering or programming language transactions and conferences, including TOSEM, TSE, ICSE, POPL, OOPSLA, ISSTA, and ASE. He has also served on the program committee or artifact evaluation committee for various international conferences (including ICSM, ISSRE, OOPSLA, and ISSTA).
