Marwan Abi-Antoun

I am an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science at Wayne State University (WSU). I obtained a Ph.D. in Software Engineering from the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU). My former advisor is Professor Jonathan Aldrich. Before that, I worked in the industry as a software engineer.

I am interested in bringing a concrete architectural perspective to software development. I use software architectures, programming language type systems and program analysis techniques to help software architects and software engineers maintain intellectual control over the runtime architecture of their object-oriented systems, for the purpose of:

I am interested in better understanding and securing existing legacy code that has high business value. I do not ask developers to throw away their investment and rewrite their existing code in a new programming language or to use some new code generation development environment.

Please see my research for a synopsis of the various projects and my publications. Also, please refer to my software page.

Please see my teaching page for the courses I taught.
