I am Rahul Pandita, a Staff Researcher at Github.
My primary research interests are in data science and automated software engineering. I specifically work in the area of program comprehension targeted towards improving developer/tester/end-user productivity.
Previously, I worked as a Senior Research Scientist II at Phase Change Software. Before that, I was as a postdoctoral researcher at Department of Computer Science NCSU working with Dr. Laurie Williams and Dr. Munindar Singh. I received my PhD. from NCSU in Computer Science. And I believe that “There is so much more left to be done…”. I strongly believe that there is always room for improvement …

My primary research interests are in programming languages and software engineering. I specifically work on applying Natural Language Processing techniques on software artifacts to improve developer/tester/end-user productivity.
