Alexi Turcotte from Northeastern visits CUNY

Alexi Turcotte (website) from Northeastern University visited CUNY last week and gave a talk on asynchronous JavaScript at our graduate student event at the CUNY Graduate center. Alexi is a 5th year Ph.D. candidate at Northeastern University. Frank Tip and Jan Vitek advise him; with Frank, he works on optimizing asynchronous JavaScript programs; with Jan, he works on fuzzing and type system design for the R programming language. He is interested in anything related to dynamic and data science languages.

The talk, entitled “Detecting and Repairing Anti-Patterns in Asynchronous JavaScript,” was the keynote that kicked off a series of lightning talks by other graduate students. An abstract and photos from the event may be found below. Thank you, Alexi, for visiting CUNY!


Reviewer for Empirical Software Engineering (EMSE)

I am pleased to announce that I have been asked to review for the Empirical Software Engineering (EMSE) international journal!


Highlights of “Challenges in Migrating Imperative Deep Learning Programs to Graph Execution: An Empirical Study”

In this blog post, we summarize, using code examples, our recent empirical study on challenges in migrating imperative Deep Learning programs to graph execution.


Fully-funded Ph.D. student position(s) in analysis and transformations of Deep Learning programs in New York City

I am currently seeking (potentially multiple, fully-funded) Ph.D. students interested in programming languages and software engineering research for an NSF-funded project on analysis and transformations for (imperative) Deep Learning (DL) programs. The project—based in the heart of New York City—focuses on enhancing the robustness, increasing run-time performance, and facilitating the long-lived evolution of DL systems, particularly, large, industrial DL systems. For more information on the project, please see the project announcement.

Potential research topics explored during the project may include (static/dynamic) program analysis and transformation (e.g., automated refactoring) and empirical software engineering. Successful candidates will be expected to work on projects that generally yield open-source developer tool research prototypes, plug-ins to popular IDEs, build systems, or static analyzers. Applicants may find additional information on the PI’s web page. They should also apply to the City University of New York (CUNY) Graduate Center (GC) Ph.D. program in Computer Science (deadline January 15) following a discussion with the PI.

Please see below for additional details on applying. Again, the Ph.D. program deadline is January 15.
