I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at Hunter College and a member of the Doctoral Faculty of The Graduate School and University Center's Ph.D. Program in Computer Science of the City University of New York (CUNY). My current research interests lie in software engineering and programming languages, particularly in regards to automated software evolution, with the goal of easing the burden associated with correctly, efficiently, and securely evolving large and complex software.

I have served as a program committee member for ECOOP, OOPSLA's Onward!, ASE's LBR, and ICSE and ESEC/FSE's demo tracks. I have organized the New York Seminar on Programming Languages and Software Engineering (NYPLSE) and co-organized the ACM Symposium on the Foundations of Software Engineering (ESEC/FSE), the European Conference on Object-Oriented Programming (ECOOP), and the Hunter College Cyber Security Summer Camp for female non-CS majors. I am a member of the CUNY Institute of Computer Simulation, Stochastic Modeling and Optimization (CoSSMO) and lead the PONDER Lab @ CUNY (flier).


I am currently seeking highly-motivated undergraduate, masters, and doctoral students interested in programming languages and/or software engineering research! Please see the students page for more information.


I received my MS and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Science from Ohio State University and my BS degree in Computer Science from Monmouth University in New Jersey. Prior to joining Hunter College, I was an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Systems Technology at New York City College of Technology. Prior to that, I was a Software Engineer at Apple, Inc. in Cupertino, California, where I worked on Digital Rights Management (DRM) for iTunes, iBooks, and the App store. I also developed distributed software that tested various features of iPhones, iPads, and iPods. You may also find more information about me by visiting my CUNY Academic Commons profile, my vita, and my blog (you can subscribe to updates). Photos of my students and I are also available.
