John-Paul Ore is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at NC State University.   John-Paul's research interests are broadly in the areas of software engineering, robotics, program analysis, and system testing using high-resolution physical simulators.  His contributions include new software engineering methods that enable dimensional analysis without developer annotations for the Robot Operating System, new open-source tools that implement these methods (, open datasets of dimensional inconsistencies found in the wild, and novel techniques in aerial field robotics for environmental monitoring.  His research combines field robotics and software engineering (SE).   Field robotics exposes the shortcomings of our ability to reason about whole systems with different levels of abstraction within realistic environments, and SE increasingly enables new capabilities to develop more dependable safety-critical systems.
