This project started as a class project for Ben Shneiderman's Information Visualization class, which I took in the Spring of 2007. The associated journal paper was published in December 2008.

This project started as a class project for Jeff Foster's Program Analysis and Understanding class, which I took in the Spring of 2006. This program tracks type qualifiers dynamically.

Survivable Network Design:
This project was started when I was an intern at AT&T in the Summer of 2006. It involves implementing Jain's algorithm for survivable network design.

As an undergraduate at Swarthmore College I had the opportunity to do research through the Mathematics department and the Computer Science department. While these papers were never submitted for publication, I did make a point of writing up my results.
