Graduate Research Assistant Position in Programming Languages and Software Engineering
I am currently seeking a graduate student interested in programming languages and software engineering research to commence at the Fall 2020 semester. While the topic is open, potential research topics may include (static/dynamic) program analysis and/or transformation (e.g., refactoring) with a focus on helping to maintain and/or evolve large and complex software efficiently, effectively, and securely. Potential topics may also include automated bug finding approaches and empirical studies. The successful candidate will be expected to work on projects that normally yield open source developer tool research prototypes, typically plug-ins to popular IDEs, build systems, or static analyzers. More information can be found on the main supervisor’s web page.
Of particular interest are students interested in applying to the City University of New York – CUNY’s Graduate Center Ph.D. program in Computer Science concurrently with the research assistantship.
Please see below for additional details on applying. (more…)
I am excited and honored to be invited to participate as a program committee (PC) member of the 34th European Conference on Object-Oriented Programming (ECOOP 2020)! The submission deadline is January 10, 2020. Please consider submitting!
I am very honored to be invited to serve on a National Science Foundation (NSF) panel.
I am pleased to announce that I have been asked to review for the IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering (TSE) journal! TSE is a leading Software Engineering research journal published bimonthly.
I am pleased to announce that I have recently received a PSC-CUNY Enhanced Research Award for a project entitled, “Analyses and Automated Refactorings for Imperative Programs that Use Functional Features.” The award amount is $12,000 and will help support students and travel. The award program is an internal funding mechanism to help promote research at CUNY. A brief abstract of the proposal is listed below:
Imperative programming uses statements to alter a program’s state, whereas functional programming avoids mutating existing data. With the recent popularity rise of functional programming, imperative languages are increasingly incorporating new functional features, enabling developers not previously familiar with functional programming to enjoy many of its benefits. Despite the advantages, however, issues arise from the interplay between the two paradigms, particular regarding involving MapReduce-style operations. This project will address these problems by formulating a theoretical foundation for the analysis and refactoring of hybrid functional/imperative programs and subsequently used to identify code that may safely be refactored for performance gains. Based on typestate analysis, it will determine when it is advantageous and safe to run hybrid code in parallel via a novel ordering inference approach that the PI will introduce. This work will advance the state-of-the-art in program analysis and automated refactoring for this mixed paradigm.
I have been invited to serve on the program committee (PC) for the 1st IEEE International Workshop on Programming Languages Research & Practice (PLRP’18) of COMPSAC 2018. The workshop is organized by Hua Ming and Mehdi Bagherzadeh of Oakland University. We look forward to the submissions. The call for papers is listed below: (more…)
I am pleased to announce that I have recently received a Hunter College Faculty Research Fellowship for 2017. The fellowship is designed to support faculty development by providing research guidance and planning, peer support, and constructive peer review.
A preprint of our ICSE 2017 paper on Default Method Refactoring is now available.
The slides from yesterday’s talk at GMU on Default Method Refactoring are now available. (more…)
