Manish Motwani is an assistant professor at the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Oregon State University. His research involves analyzing current software engineering practices and large software repositories to uncover interesting phenomena and utilize that knowledge to design novel automation techniques, such as requirements elicitation, testing, and program repair. Motwani has made significant contributions to the field and has published multiple papers in top-tier software engineering conferences and journals. In addition, he actively contributes to open-source software, further enriching the software engineering community with his expertise.
Previously, Motwani held a postdoctoral fellow position at the Georgia Institute of Technology, where he worked on automated testing for high-performance computing applications, as well as automated specification generation for REST APIs. He earned his Ph.D. in computer science from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, under the guidance of Yuriy Brun, with a research focus on enhancing automatic program repair techniques for practical use by software practitioners. Before commencing his doctoral studies, Motwani conducted research in requirements engineering at the Tata Research Development and Design Centre in Pune, India.
