I will be judging at the preliminary round of the 2016 New York City Science and Engineering Fair (NYCSEF) on March 6. Please come out to support our city’s aspiring scientists and engineers.
The LSAMP program is now accepting applications for Spring 2016. Accepted students will receive up to $5000 to conduct research with a faculty mentor during the Spring 2016 semester and beyond. The deadline to apply is December 14, 2015. If you are interested in applying with myself as a faculty mentor, please complete my informational form. More information is listed below:
The LSAMP program is a NSF funded program that has the objective of increasing the numbers of minority students graduating with degrees in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) fields. The program does this by giving eligible students a stipend and training as they work alongside a CUNY faculty mentor on a research project.
Eligibility and application instructions can be found on the attached pdf file but I still wanted to go over some important steps:
- Find a faculty mentor doing research. A list of such faculty mentors can be found here.
- Have the mentor agree to take you on in their lab for a research project (spanning 2 months for the summer).
- Create a research project with your mentor or work on a project your mentor is currently working on.
- Fill out and submit your application.
- Send in supporting documents (scanned) to firstname.lastname@example.org and CC email@example.com: Updated Transcript, Resume, Birth certificate, Passport or Green Card, Social Security Card.
You will be notified via mail of acceptance.
Please Note: If are interested in applying but do not currently have a mentor, please submit the Phase I application and leave the mentor information and project details parts blank. Once you have confirmed a project mentor and project, they must email the LSAMP office with their project title, project description, mentor’s name, and mentor’s email address. The mentor will then be manually sent the Mentor Endorsement link.
The for applications for Spring 2016 is December 14, 2015. So please be swift!

Today I am demoing Fraglight: Shedding Light on Broken Pointcuts in Evolving Aspect-Oriented Software at the Razorfish Global Tech Summit 2015. If you’re in attendance, please come down to the lab for a demo!
I am currently seeking students interested in becoming “emerging scholars” this Spring semester and who are interested in programming languages and/or software engineering research.
The research would involve static analysis and program transformation to help maintain existing software systems. The work is normally yields developer tools that are plug-ins to popular IDEs like Eclipse and NetBeans. More information can be found on my research page and, particularly, my software page, which has some examples of previous tools. I would be interested in continuing some work on a refactoring tool that is currently under development.
The application deadline is September 30. Please complete this form if you are interested in applying.
The CUNY Research Scholars Program (CRSP) application deadline has been extended to 9/21/2015! Please let me know if any associate-level students are interested in programming languages and software engineering research and are interested in applying with me as a mentor. More information may be found on the program guidelines and the application form. Please note that the program is only available to associate-level students.
De Blasio to Announce 10-Year Deadline to Offer Computer Science to All Students – The New York Times
Meeting the requirement set by Mayor Bill de Blasio for New York public schools will present major challenges, mostly in training enough teachers.
