Murphy-Hill Receives Google Research Award

Dr. Emerson Murphy-Hill, assistant professor of computer science at NC State University, has been awarded $34,862 by the Google Research Awards program to support his research proposal titled “Refactoring-Aware Code Review.”
The purpose of the Google Research Awards program is to facilitate more interaction between Google and academia, and to also nurture stronger relations and partnerships with universities, and to identify and support world-class, full-time faculty pursuing research in areas of mutual interest. The intent of the awards is to support cutting-edge research in computer science, engineering and related fields.  Awards through the program are typically for one year in the range of $10K-$150K.
Participants in the awards program are expected to have a primary contact at Google through whom they discuss research directions, provide progress updates, engage in knowledge transfer, etc.  Dr. Caitlin Sadowski will serve as Dr. Murphy-Hill’s liaison at Google during the time of the project.
