I am Arghavan, a Ph.D. student at Polytechnique Montréal University. I work under the supervision of Prof. Foutse Khomh and Prof. Michel C. Desmarais in collaboration with SWAT Lab and CALM Lab. My research is focused on but not limited to developing, enhancing, and evaluating AI (DL/ML) techniques to automate software engineering tasks, with the ultimate goal of improving developers' productivity. To address this problem space, I dig into developers' codes and contributions in open-source environments. Also, I research ways to evaluate large language models for generating codes and explore ways to use such models to enhance human programming skills and productivity. My research interest intersects with machine learning/deep learning, software engineering, program synthesis, recommender systems, and human-computer/AI interaction.
Prior to pursuing my Ph.D., I earned a Master's degree in Software Engineering from Shahid Beheshti University. During my Master's education, I worked on improving user experience by enhancing recommender systems for a music social network. Additionally, I have five years of experience in software development and project management across various companies.
