Williams Receives Research Grant from Nortel Networks

Dr. Laurie Williams has received funding from Nortel Networks of approximately $46,000 to support her research proposal titled “Hot Spot Identification and Test-Driven Development.”

The award will run from August 15, 2006 through December 31, 2007.

Research Abstract - The grant involves the collaboration on two projects for improving software quality at Nortel. In one project, a means for identifying "hot spots" in code will be developed and validated based upon historical data (static complexity, code churn, defect history for the module and potentially code coverage data). In the second project, we will examine the efficacy the test test-driven development practice for improving software quality.
