Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Programming language
  • Operating system
  • Software

Westley Weimer focuses on Programming language, Software maintenance, Software bug, Software and Genetic programming. The Software maintenance study which covers Software quality that intersects with Documentation, Natural language processing and Readability. His Software bug study combines topics in areas such as Software system, Data mining and Benchmark.

Westley Weimer interconnects Formal specification and Database in the investigation of issues within Software. His Formal specification research also works with subjects such as

  • Debugging, which have a strong connection to Legacy system and Automatic programming,
  • Source code together with Program analysis. His Genetic programming research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Delta Debugging, Test case, Source lines of code and Software engineering.

His most cited work include:

  • OceanStore: an architecture for global-scale persistent storage (3026 citations)
  • CIL: Intermediate Language and Tools for Analysis and Transformation of C Programs (910 citations)
  • GenProg: A Generic Method for Automatic Software Repair (603 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Programming language, Software, Debugging, Code and Software engineering. His Programming language study incorporates themes from Abstraction and Genetic programming. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Data mining, Formal specification and Source code.

His Debugging course of study focuses on Counterexample and Theoretical computer science. Westley Weimer has included themes like Java, Software maintenance and Test suite in his Software bug study. His studies examine the connections between Software maintenance and genetics, as well as such issues in Source lines of code, with regards to Documentation.

  • Code (12.75%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His main research concerns Reading, Software, Code, Coding and Programming language. His research in Software intersects with topics in Low overhead, Distributed computing and Face-to-face. The subject of his Code research is within the realm of Computer security.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Software deployment, Artificial intelligence and Natural language processing. His research links Code navigation with Programming language. His Python study deals with Test case intersecting with Source code.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The Surprising Creativity of Digital Evolution: A Collection of Anecdotes from the Evolutionary Computation and Artificial Life Research Communities (24 citations)
  • Distilling neural representations of data structure manipulation using fMRI and fNIRS (14 citations)
  • Neurological divide: an fMRI study of prose and code writing (9 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Programming language
  • Operating system
  • Software

Reading, State, Evolutionary computation, Software and Set are his primary areas of study. His State research integrates issues from Maintainability, Software engineering, Software testing and Static program analysis. His Evolutionary computation study incorporates themes from Experimental evolution and Artificial life.

His Software research includes elements of Computer security, Volume, Leverage and Malware analysis. His Set research incorporates themes from Automaton, Pattern matching, Field-programmable gate array, Embedded system and Benchmark. In his research, Natural language processing, Machine learning and Ranking is intimately related to Artificial intelligence, which falls under the overarching field of Program comprehension.
