Collaborative Software Engineering Research

I worked with Prof. Dewan and Ph.D. students Vahid Mashayekhi and Mike Stein on a wide range of collaborative applications. My group investigated applications based on Prof. Dewan's collaboration infrastructure. We focused on collaborative applications for software engineering. We explored collaboration across the two dimensions of space and time.

Overall we found that with proper support, collaboration was nearly as effective in distributed environments as in same-time/same-place environments. We also developed a general theory of interconnected annotations of software documents.

In related research, we examined requirements for distance learning environments, and how collaboration technology can support them

On to multimedia research
