I am Davood Mazinanian, currently a Ph.D. candidate at Concordia University, Montreal, Canada. Since 2013, I have been working under the supervision of Dr. Nikolaos Tsantalis. I enjoy developing tools (e.g., IDE plugins) for software developers. For that, I conduct research in software engineering. More specifically, my main research interests include source code analysis (static/dynamic) and refactoring for traditional (e.g., Java) and web languages (e.g., Cascading Style Sheets, JavaScript) and empirical software engineering. You may find more information about my research on this page.

In 2011, I received my M.Sc. degree in Information Technology Engineering from Shiraz University, Iran, under the supervision of Dr. M. Doroodchi (formerly at Cardinal Stritch University, now at UNC Charlotte). During my Masters' studies, I developed a tool for organising and suggesting software metrics for web developers in different stages of web development.

Moreover, I received my B.Sc. in Information Technology Engineering (Summa Cum Laude) from Shahrood University of Technology, Shahrood, Iran, in 2009.
