Supatsara Wattanakriengkrai


I am a Ph.D. student in the Software Engineering Laboratory at Nara Institute of Science and Technology. My research interests include Empirical Software Engineering, Mining Software Repositories, Software Ecosystems, and Human Aspects of Software Engineering. In detail, my research focuses on the relationship between developer contributions and their package dependencies in software ecosystems, how developers whose code depends on other packages in the software ecosystems, submit contributions to assist these packages. The ultimate goal of my research is to attract developers to make sustained contributions to software ecosystems. My research collaborates with Prof. Raula Gaikovina Kula, Prof. Christoph Treude, Prof. Patanamon Thongtanunam, and Prof. Kenichi Matsumoto.
