Dr. Lawrence Chung is the principal author of the research monograph "Non-Functional Requirements in Software Engineering" [scholarly impact/citations], which has been adopted and applied by many researchers and used by practitioners in a wide area of software engineering research and practice, including Requirements Engineering  [relative scholarly impact/citations] and more broadly Software Engineering [relative scholarly impact/citations], as well as System/Software Architecture. His research involves, among other things, the use of a conceptual modeling approach.


Dr. Chung has also been working on the development of tool kits. “RE-Tools”, which has been developed in his lab., has been downloaded highly from a large number of countries [download statistics] [a short video clip] for both education and industrial use.  Another tool kit under development, CAT (Component-Aware Technology)/CARE (Component-Aware Requirements Engineering), concerns development and reuse of software components.


He has been working on a variety of applications, including collaborative, ubiquitous computing. One particular application, HOPE [download statistics], is a smartphone application for people (elderly) with hearing, speech, vision and memory loss or muscle weakness.  Another application, HACS, is a home appliance control system, that concerns controlling and managing various types of home appliances, for example, for energy savings and home security. 


Silverlining is another key project, involving a team of both internal and external researchers, on forecasting and benchmarking Cloud Computing, as an increasingly importanct concern of Systems of Systems Engineering - currently being supported by Google Inc., NTT Data and NSF-IUCRC.


He has been a keynote speaker, an invited lecturer, a co-editor-in-chief for International Journal of Software Innovation, an editorial board member for the Requirements Engineering Journal and International Journal of Networked and Distributed Computing, an editor for the ETRI journal, and a program co-chair for various international events. 


He is currently an Associate Professor of Computer Science at The University of Texas at Dallas.  He received his Ph.D. in Computer Science in 1993 from University of Toronto, where he had previously received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees. He stayed there as a Lecturer for a year. He also participated in a Business Process Reengineering project at Andersen Consulting, Chicago, before joining UTD.
