From 1984 to 1987 she served as Chief Scientist of CMU's Software Engineering Institute. She had previously earned a B.A (cum laude) from Rice University and worked in systems programming and research at the Research Analysis Corporation and Rice University.

Sophie Jeong

My recent research interests are in ubiquitous computing and social computing

ubiquitous computing social computing context-aware mobile social applications

I joined CMU as a Research Fellow in the ISR department at the Carnegie Mellon University since 2010. Before joining CMU, I worked at PricewaterhouseCoopers consulting, IBM IT architect group and Mobile finance application development company. For the past years I researched the usability of Service Oriented Architecture and developed a transcoding engine for mobile finance solutions by connecting back-end system with web service architecture and by adapting smart phone technology at front-ed, covering iPhone, Android and Blackberry. My past working experience led to open a new mobile app course at SCS, I’ve been teaching 08723 "Mobile Application Development for iOS and Android" in every spring semester as well as summer semester since 2011.

"we aim to make security requirements more usable by experts, developers, and systems engineers"

security privacy

My research Interests are Security and Privacy. With all the current and different threats facing technology users today, and with people's huge reliance on those technologies; it becomes important to find ways where we protect users privacy and security without making such tasks so complicated for the user.

Laurie Jones

Broadly speaking, my research explores information in a social context: exploring how people acquire, share, and use information with respect to their social interactions.

privacy information seeking information disclosure social networks social software health information

I am a graduate student in the Computation, Organizations & Society program at Carnegie Mellon University. I am currently advised by Kathleen Carley. Additionally, I am working for the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center while I work toward the completion of my PhD. My thesis will combine statistics, machine learning, and dynamic network analysis to build a model of preventive health care behavior that can be used to better target interventions to encourage more people to receive recommended preventive health care services.

Professor Claire Le Goues

we combine stochastic search methods like genetic programming with lightweight program analyses to find patches for real bugs in extant software.

software engineering programming langaugesautomatic error repair

Professor Le Goues is an Assistant Professor in the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University. Her home department is the Institute for Software Research. She is broadly interested in software engineering and programming languages, and particularly in how engineers can construct, maintain, and evolve high-quality, real-world systems. Her primary research focus has been on automatic error repair.

Professor Lorrie Cranor

building systems that work without involving humans in security-critical functions; making intuitive; and teaching humans to perform security-critical tasks.

usable privacy and security technology and public policy

Lorrie Cranor is an associate professor in the ISR and the school of Engineering and Public Policy. She is the director of the Cylab Usable Privacy and Security Laboratory and her current projects include privacy decision making, user-controllable security and privacy, usable cyber trust indicators and usable secure passwords. She has also worked on anti-phishing and electronic voting, among other things.

Professor Sujata Telang

Curriculum development and mentoring for software engineering and computer science courses at a Carnegie Mellon spinoff began my transition to academia.

real-time software development embedded software development software architecture requirements engineering organizational behaviour infomatics

I received my bachelors degree in electrical engineering in India, and masters degrees in software engineering & business administration (both from Carnegie Mellon University).

I came to Carnegie Mellon with over 15 years of software engineering experience, in India & the US, with a focus on real-time software development, spanning all phases of the development life-cycle and various roles. This includes process-control instrumentation, & software development for research in road simulation & fatigue testing of automotive components. This also includes software development for knowledge-based systems used for text and fact extraction, for clients such as Reuters, Pacific Bell, Caterpillar, Diebold, US West, and Lucent Technologies.

Ashwini Rao

Ashwini is so enamored with academics and industry that she keeps switching between the two.

Ashwini Rao is a Ph.D. student in Software Engineering in the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University. Ashwini currently works on the Usable Privacy Policy Project, and her advisor is Prof. Norman Sadeh. Ashwini is so enamored with academics and industry that she keeps switching between the two. In the process she has acquired significant experience in computer systems and security, completed two masters degrees (MS Computer Security, Carnegie Mellon University; MS Computer Science and Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Bombay), finished a bachelors degree (BS Computer Science and Engineering, University of Mysore), and held four full time jobs (Qualcomm Incorporated, San Diego, CA; Appian Corporation, Reston, VA among others).

Roykrong Sukkerd

I explore how we can build intelligent agents that can coordinate computing resources available in the environment to support users' activities.

ambient intelligence artificial intelligence pervasive computing

I am a first year PhD student in Software Engineering, co-advised by David Garlan and Reid Simmons. I am a member of ABLE group. My research touches multiple areas including artificial intelligence, pervasive computing, and software engineering. I am interested in questions surrounding intelligent systems in pervasive computing environment.
