Students and alumni are listed in alphabetical order.

Sorelle Friedler

Sorelle is currently in the Computer Science PhD Program at the University of Maryland. Her advisor is David Mount. Her current research is in the overlap of kinetic data structures and robust statistics. She is also working on a project with Jeff Foster on tracking type qualifiers dynamically. She is an AT&T Labs Fellowship recipient. Her mentor at AT&T is Aaron Archer and she is working with him on an implementation of Jain's algorithm for the survivable network design problem. She is one of the organizers of the cswomen group and blogs about her experiences as a woman in computer science.

Nargess Memarsadeghi

Nargess Memarsadeghi defended her Ph.D. in Computer Science Department of the University of Maryland at College Park, in April 2007. Her academic advisor was Professor David Mount. Nargess is currently working for NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Science Data Processing Branch (Code 587). She is interested in design and development of efficient algorithms for various NASA scientists. While her past projects' applications were mostly in remote sensing and earth sciences, she now supports projects in areas of optical physics and satellite sensors.

Jaymie Strecker

Jaymie is a Ph.D. student in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Maryland, College Park. She graduated from the College of Wooster in 2004 with majors in computer science and math and got her M.S. in computer science at Maryland in 2006. She is an NPSC Fellowship recipient. Her dissertation work with Prof. Atif Memon aims to show how software testers can use characteristics of test cases, test suites, and faults to understand and improve fault detection. She is one of the organizers of the cswomen group.
