New student Harun Iftikhar.

A new doctoral student, Harun Iftikhar, will join our team starting this Fall semester! Harun will enter the PhD program in Computer Science at the CUNY Graduate Center as a half CUNY Graduate Center Science Fellow, which offers salary for two years and tuition for ten semesters.

Harun’s research interests are in programming languages, software engineering, and natural language processing. He previously attended Cornell University for his undergraduate degree as an English major and has attended Brooklyn College and Columbia University for Computer Science as a graduate student. Before college, he went to high school in Islamabad, Pakistan. His hobbies are cricket and tennis. Congrats, Harun, and welcome to the team!

Oren to participate in Google Summer of Code 2018

I am pleased to announce that Oren has been selected to participate in the prestigious Google Summer of Code program this summer. He’ll be receiving a generous stipend to work on an open source project for the Eclipse Foundation, and I will be serving as his coach along with his mentor Yasser Aziza. He’ll be working on a program analysis and refactoring to be integrated into the Eclipse IDE that makes reasoning about abnormal program termination easier. Congrats, Oren!
