Jon is a fourth year PhD candidate at Columbia University studying Software Engineering with Prof Gail Kaiser. His research interests in Software Engineering mostly fall under the umbrella of Software Testing and Program Analysis. Jon’s recent research in accelerating software testing has been recognized with an ACM SIGSOFT Distinguished Paper Award (ICSE ’14 – Unit Test Virtualization with VMVM), and has been the basis for an industrial collaboration with the bay-area software build acceleration company Electric Cloud. Jon actively participates in the artifact evaluation program committees of ISSTA and OOPSLA, and has served several years as the Student Volunteer chair for OOPSLA. His most recent publications are Efficient Dependency Detection for Safe Java Test Acceleration (FSE ’15), Pebbles: Fine-Grained Data Management Abstractions for Modern Operating Systems (OSDI ’14) and Phosphor: Illuminating Dynamic Data Flow in Off-The Shelf JVMs (OOPSLA ’14).
