Professional Bio

A former Fulbright Scholar, born and raised in Romania, Andrian Marcus is now a Professor in the Department of Computer Science at The University of Texas at Dallas. He obtained his Ph.D. in Computer Science from Kent State University (US), with Jonathan Maletic as his advisor. He has prior degrees in Computer Science and European Studies from The University of Memphis (US) and Babes-Bolyai University (Cluj-Napoca, Romania). In 2021 he was named Distinguished Alumnus of the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Babes-Bolyai University.

His research interests are in software engineering, with focus on program understanding and software evolution. He is best known for his work on using text retrieval and analysis techniques on software corpora for supporting comprehension during software evolution, and he is the recipient of the NSF CAREER award

Professionally, he is most proud of his outstanding current and past doctoral students and finds mentoring to be the most rewarding part of the academic career. Over time, their joint research earned six Best/Distinguished Paper Awards and seven Most Influential Paper Awards at software engineering conferences.

His professional service includes serving on the Steering Committees of the IEEE International Conference on Software Maintenance and Evolution (ICSME) and of the IEEE Working Conference on Software Visualization (VISSOFT). He was the General Chair and the Program Co-chair of ICSME in 2011 and 2010, respectively, and Program Co-Chair for other conferences (ICPC'09, VISSOFT'13, SANER'17).

He currently serves on the editorial board of the Journal of Software: Evolution and Process. He has also served on the editorial board of the IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering (2014-2018) and the Empirical Software Engineering Journal (2010-2021).
