Transfer Issues in Software Engineering

 

Hi, I'm Nischal. I'm interested in applying HCI research to build new techniques and tools to help software engineers become more productive. Specifically, I do research in learning transfer for programming languages, investigating new techniques and tools that can help programmers learn second and subsequent languages effectively and efficiently. I work in the alt-code lab at NC State University and I am advised by Dr. Chris Parnin.
