Special thanks goes to my advisor, Professor Richard N. Taylor, who recruited me to a research group that I have been very proud of and let me work on interesting projects. I thank Dick from the bottom of my heart for offering me all the support, guidance, and resources I needed to complete my Ph.D. study. In particular, I really appreciate the trust and space that Dick gave me in research, and always pointing me to the directions that later on I felt very excited about. These significantly fostered the development of my dissertation work. Last, but not least, I thank Dick for inviting me to a delicious homemade Thanksgiving dinner. Yes, that was unforgettable!

I would like to thank my dissertation committee members, Professor André van der Hoek and Professor James A. Jones. Thank you for spending time reading my survey paper, topic proposal, and dissertation, and giving me helpful feedback. I always think the time we spent together in my candidacy exam and topic defense is one of my most valuable experiences during my PhD study.

Discussing my research with world-class researchers in two-hour period, in my eyes, is one of most exciting things.

In addition, a thank you to Professor Donald J Patterson and Professor Lizhi Sun, who both joined my candidacy committee. Thank you for your time and comments! What you did really meant a lot to me. I also want to thank Professor Nenad Medvidović of University of Southern California. I met with Neno several times, and he has been helpful to me all the time.

Many thanks to Eric Dashofy. Eric reviewed my ICSE paper, topic proposal, NSF proposal, and gave me challenging questions that I had to think over before I could respond. Those long conversations we once had by email not only made many ideas and concepts clear, but also helped to get my research ready to face a wider research community. Particularly, I want to thank Eric for developing ArchStudio 4, a wonderful system and platform based on which my dissertation work was done. Thank you, Eric, for everything!

Hazel Asuncion and Scott Hendrickson gave me many help when I first came to UC Irvine.

Hazel also kindly answered all my questions regarding her ACTS project during the evaluation of my dissertation work. I would like to use this opportunity to express my gratitude to both of them for being such great group mates to me.

I would like to extend my thanks to Justin Erenkrantz, Michael Gorlick, Alegria Baquero, Kyle Strasser, Leyna Cotran, Erik Trainer, Rosalva Gallardo Valencia, HyeJung Choi, Derek Pfister, Francisco Servant, and Fang Deng. Justin, Michael, Alegria, and I worked together on the CREST demo project, which finally generated some impressive results. Kyle is my constant office mate, who comes to the office every day as I do and patiently answered my questions ix ranging from English to places to buy eyeglasses. Leyna gave a guest lecture to an undergraduate class that I once taught, and I really appreciate the time and effort she spent on that. Erik spent a whole morning in helping me record the demo video of my developed tool. His charming voice made the video absolutely better, and I know that was far more than the lunch I treated him. In addition, HyeJung, Derek, and I took many classes together and we worked together on several class projects. Paco, Fang, and I attended ASE 2011 together, and we had a great time there.

Thank you, everyone!

Finally, I give my most sincere gratitude to my family. To my wife Yan and my daughter Janie, I love you so much and thank you for bringing me so much pleasure. To Dad and Mom, who have done so many things for me unconditionally, words are not enough to express my gratitude.

Without your support, I do not think I am still on my way to pursuit my academic goal. I would also like to thank my brother Yongsheng Zheng, my sister Dongmei Zheng, my uncle Shubiao Liu, my cousin Gang Liu, and their families. I miss all of you in this big family. I love you all!
