Congratulations to Tatiana for being selected to participate in the 2022 CRA-WP Grad Cohort for Women! The NSF-funded workshop, which “aims to increase the ranks of senior women in computing-related studies and research by building and mentoring nationwide communities of women through their graduate studies,” will take place later this year in New Orleans. More information can be found on the event page. Congrats, Tatiana!
Ajani Stewart, a CUNY Hunter College undergraduate Computer Science student who is also part of the CUNY Macaulay Honors College and worked with us on our recent ICSE ’21 paper, was recently accepted into a post-baccalaureate program at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)! Congrats, Ajani!
Yiming has been awarded a postdoctoral fellowship at the Department of Computer Science and Software Engineering (CSSE) of Concordia University in Canada, a central research institution in the field of Software Engineering and Programming Languages. Yiming will be working with Weiyi Shang. Congrats, Yiming!
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!
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…)
A new doctoral student, Tatiana Castro Vélez, will join the team starting this Fall semester! Tatiana will enter the Ph.D. program in Computer Science at the CUNY Graduate Center as a CUNY Graduate Center/Hunter College Computer Science fellow.
Tatiana is currently completing her Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science at the University of Puerto Rico, Río Piedras. She has worked as a software engineer in the industry at Rocksolid Technologies, where she worked with the company’s databases. Tatiana also has research experience in investigating the use of mobile app frameworks to collect data in general research projects and is president of her ACM student chapter.
