I'm an associate professor in the Computer and Information Sciences Department at the University of Delaware. My general research area is software engineering. More specifically, I focus on helping developers find and fix bugs.

Currently, I'm working on projects to:

  • help software developers write energy-efficient applications
  • help software testers write high-quality, durable tests
  • improve software quality by safely using potentially sensitive information gathered from users

More detailed information about my academic life is available in my curriculum vitae.
