New student Ye joins the team

Ye Paing profile photo

Please welcome Ye Paing to the team! Ye is a part-time Master’s student in Computer Science at Hunter; he works full-time as a Software Engineer at AMEX. He is interested in exploring reactive web development for data-intensive applications, NLP, and large-scale textual analysis. Outside of work and school, he spends time volunteering for Code Nation, a nonprofit organization that teaches React web-development to high school students. His hobbies are photography, traveling, and exploring new cuisines.

Ye has taken several advanced classes in Programming Languages and Software Engineering at Hunter. He was also an active participant at NYPLSE 2019 that took place at Hunter. Ye will be working on data mining software engineering artifacts, possibly in real-time. Welcome, Ye!

New student Manal joins the team

We have a new master’s student, Manal Zneit, joining us! Manal has a background in Mathematics, and she is now pursuing a degree in Computer Science. Manal is also an adjunct lecturer at CUNY Lehman College, where she teaches various introductory programming classes. She will be working on research at the intersection of Software Engineering, Programming Languages, and Data Science. Welcome, Manal!

Workshops co-chair for SPLASH 2021

I am honored to serve, along with Mehdi Bagherzadeh, as the workshops co-chair for the 2021 ACM SIGPLAN conference on Systems, Programming, Languages, and Applications: Software for Humanity (SPLASH), scheduled to be held in Chicago, IL later this year.

Invited to participate on 2021 NSF panel

I am honored to be invited to serve as a reviewer for a 2021 National Science Foundation (NSF) panel.

Yiming passes the second exam

I am pleased to announce that my doctoral student Yiming Tang has successfully passed her second exam. She is now a Ph.D. candidate. Congrats, Yiming! And, thank you to the committee, Ashwin Satyanarayana and Subash Shankar!
