Summer 2001 Research

This summer I am doing research at the Georgia Institute of Technology with Mary Jean Harrold (of Georgia Tech) and Mary Lou Soffa (of the University of Pittsburgh) through the CRA Distributed Mentor Program (DMP). The DMP matches undergraduate women with women at graduate institutions in computer science to encourage women to attend grad school in CS&CE. I am a summer member of Dr. Harrold's research team, the Aristotle Research Group.

Here is a rough outline of the project.
