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.
It's Like Python But: Towards Supporting Transfer of Programming Language Knowledge [pdf]
We explore a tool to support learning new programming languages, given experience in one or more languages.

Towards Supporting Knowledge Transfer of Programming Language Knowledge[pdf]
I outline the current research on learning transfer for programming languages and provide first steps for better transfer support.
