Going Beyond Code Search
Professor, Computer Science Department, Brown University
Steven Reiss is Professor of Computer Science in the Computer Science Department at Brown University. He has been a member of the Brown faculty since 1977. He is the author of numerous papers in journals and proceedings as well as two books. He has served on a variety of conference program committees for SIGPLAN, SIGSOFT, and IEEE. He has written several software systems that have been widely distributed outside of Brown.
Dr. Reiss's research interests and expertise center around programming, in particular making programming simpler and more understandable. He has done extensive research in the areas of programming tools and environments as well as program visualization. He has also done work on message-based integration, program design, databases, and the debugging, testing and checking of complex systems.
Current research by Dr. Reiss includes a novel approach to code search based on test cases and other semantic properties, work on the visualization and analysis of the dynamics of complex software systems, and Code Bubbles, a working-set based user interfaces for programming
