A preprint of our ICSE ’21 paper on studying refactoring and technical debt in Machine Learning systems is now available.
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!
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!
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.
Our paper entitled, “An empirical study of refactorings and technical debt in Machine Learning systems,” has been accepted to the main technical research track at the 2021 International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE)! Out of 602 papers, 138 were accepted, amounting to a 23% acceptance rate. Congrats to Yiming, Mehdi, Rhia, Ajani, and Anita, and thank you for all of your hard work!
I am honored to be invited to serve as a reviewer for a 2021 National Science Foundation (NSF) panel.
Congrats to Allan Spektor for successfully defending his MA thesis, entitled Two Techniques for Automated Logging Statement Evolution, yesterday! Thank you to Subash Shankar and Saptarshi Debroy for agreeing to participate on the committee, Khant Ko Naing for administering the defense, and the student participants for their insightful questions. Congrats, Allan!(more…)
Today, I accepted the EAPLS best paper award on behalf of my coauthors at the virtual ETAPS 2020 afternoon. Thank you, ETAPS, and congrats again to Yiming, Mehdi, and Baishakhi!
