We welcome both graduate and undergraduate students to join the Software Engineering Research Laboratory to conduct research projects of mutual interest.
To current and prospective students:
So far, all of my graduate students have published at least one rigorously peer-reviewed, full research paper. Thus, I expect all future students to publish in order to qualify for graduation.
The following undergraduate students are doing research projects with SERL:
- Louis Racette, Honor Thesis, on visual exploration of multiple-dimensional data. Graduated.
- Russell Seidel, Math and SE double majors, Honor Thesis, on improving API usability by recommending pertinent documentation within developer tools. Now pursuing PhD at Purdue.
- Daniel Deloff, SE major, PLC programming
- Houchao Gan, EE major
- Adam E. Scott, SE major, Programming competition
- Jamal Stoute, SE major
- Sean McTigue, SE major
