Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) Dr. Lance Fiondella received a two-year $125K research grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF). The project, “Robust Algorithms for an Open Source Software Reliability Tool”, was awarded by the Division of Computer and Network Systems (CNS) within the Directorate for Computer & Information Science & Engineering (CISE).
This project will develop an open source software reliability tool that will allow software engineers to automatically apply software reliability models to help organizations ensure that software applications they develop can operate free of failures. The goal of this research is to develop numerically stable algorithms that will succeed even if the initial estimates are inaccurate. The enhanced stability of the algorithms and the open source nature of the tool will promote widespread use of quantitative software reliability models, enabling companies and organizations to improve time to market or field a software product.
Dr. Fiondella received his Ph.D. from the University of Connecticut in 2012. He joined the ECE department in fall 2013.
