About me

Mijung is an assistant professor at the Computer Science and Engineering department of UNIST (Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology), South Korea. She is leading Software Testing and Analysis Research Lab at UNIST. Prior to joing UNIST in 2021, she worked as a postdoc researcher at Purdue University, USA and worked with Prof. Xiangyu Zhang and Prof. Lin Tan. She obtained a PhD degree from Hong Kong University of Science and Technology in 2019 under the supervision of Prof. Sunghun Kim and Prof. Shing-Chi Cheung.

Her research focuses on automated software testing with emphasis on unit test generation and its practical usage. Recently, she is working on developing testing techniques for the machine learning frameworks and applications. In the past, she also worked on defect prediction for API testing, regression testing on biomedical infrastructure software, and detecting incomplete bug fixes.

Research Interests

Automated software testing and analysis in the artificial intelligence domain, test generation, fuzzing, mining software data, search-based software engineering, regression testing, and defect prediction.

For Prospective Students

We are looking for research students in all levels, undergraduate interns, MS, MS-PhD, and PhD. If you are interested, please send an email to Mijung at mijungk at unist dot ac dot kr. For more information about our lab, please visit our lab introduction page here.
