Bio
* Vijay is a Ph.D. student in the Software Engineering program at the University of California, Irvine. Vijay is interested in building, visualizing and studying reusable models of the runtime behavior of software systems that can be leveraged for a number of software development and maintenance tasks. Vijay's research focus is towards facilitating software comprehension and debugging which are complex and ubiquitous activities within software engineering. Before starting graduate school at UCI, Vijay graduated with a Bachelors degree in Computer Engineering, with a First Class with Distinction from the University of Pune, India.
