Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Programming language
  • Operating system
  • Software

Michael W. Godfrey focuses on Software system, Software engineering, Software maintenance, Programming language and Software development. His studies in Software system integrate themes in fields like Clone, Code, Cloning and Source code. His Cloning study incorporates themes from Sandbox, World Wide Web, Reverse engineering and Taxonomy.

His research integrates issues of Software evolution, Software architecture description, Software bug, Software and KPI-driven code analysis in his study of Software engineering. He interconnects Computer security, Testbed and Duplicate code in the investigation of issues within Software maintenance. His Software development research integrates issues from Topic model, Variety, Data science and Relational database management system.

His most cited work include:

  • Cloning considered harmful considered harmful: patterns of cloning in software (285 citations)
  • Using origin analysis to detect merging and splitting of source code entities (256 citations)
  • "Cloning Considered Harmful" Considered Harmful (217 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Software engineering, Software system, Software, Software development and Source code are his primary areas of study. The study incorporates disciplines such as Reverse engineering, Software development process, Reference architecture, Software quality and Software construction in addition to Software engineering. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Software architecture and Cloning.
