CS Students Selected as Clare Booth Luce Research Scholars

Two Computer Science students, Kathryn Kenny '20 and Althea Chokwe '22, were selected as recipients of the 2019 Clare Boothe Luce (CBL) Research Scholars Program awards at Iona College.

Kathryn Kenny Kathryn Kenny '20

Kathryn's CBL research in 2018 focused on precondition issues in software refactoring. During 2018, she successfully implemented her own precondition checker that fixes all known flaws in rename method refactoring. Kathryn is planning to further her research in 2019 by implementing a novel rename method refactoring tool that makes code changes directly to the source code without using pretty-printing techniques.

 
Althea Chokwe Althea Chokwe '22

Althea's CBL project will tackle a challenging research problem in Software Product Line (SPL) refactoring. She will research on ways to preserve the original behavior of all SPL products when refactoring a single product program.
