A University of Wisconsin-Fox Valley student research group, led by Dr. Saleh Alnaeli, computer science professor, has presented its findings at several professional conferences recently.
The group has also expanded to include members from UW-Sheboygan and UW-Marathon County and has been collaborating with other researchers from Central Michigan University.
Shown at the Consortium for Computing Sciences and Colleges (CCSC) Midwest conference held in Indiana and sponsored by ACM are (left to right): UW-Fox students Melissa Sarnowski and Yanting Liang; UW-Sheboygan student Zachary Blasczyk; and Dr. Alnaeli.
Joining the group recently as new investigators are UW-Fox students: Keith Ecker, Derrek Larson and Jonathan Renier-Wigg.
Their research focuses on the development and construction of methods and tools for the analysis of large-scale software systems from different problem domains and from different sources like NASA, Google and many other open source scientific systems.
Dr. Alnaeli established this undergraduate research group of UW-Fox freshman and sophomore level students not only to engage them in research, but also to also establish professional relationships with research communities and local companies.
“Our UW-Fox Valley students are involved in research at early stages to expose them to the research communities and research protocols nationwide and internationally,” said Dr. Alnaeli. “This prepares them for future academic research opportunities.”
