The Software Analysis and Compilation Lab @ UD consists of a group of faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates in the Department of Computer and Information Sciences at the University of Delaware. Our research addresses various aspects of program analysis and transformation for code optimization and software tools, targeted toward software engineering and high performance computer architectures. Current research projects focus on natural language analysis of software to improve software maintenance tools, analysis and testing of web-based software systems, and analysis and optimization of MPI parallel programs for effective communication-computation overlap.

We are constantly changing our membership, and often have opportunities for new members to join our research group as a graduate student doing Ph.D. research, as a master's student interested in doing a master's thesis, or as an undergraduate student interested in summer undergraduate research or an honors thesis. If you are interested in discussing the possibility of joining our research group, send email to Lori Pollock to set up an appointment.


UDaily UD Computer Science Students Create Teaching Aids

Professor Lori Pollock and Terry Harvey led a fast-track Winter Session course in 2009 designed to explore how students would respond to new teaching methods and materials, to explore the challenges of incorporating robots into introductory computer sciences courses, and to initiate UD involvement in the One Laptop per Child program.
