Name: James C. Davis

Bio: I am an Assistant Professor in ECE@Purdue. I hold a PhD in CS from Virginia Tech, where I was advised by Dongyoon Lee (now of Stony Brook).

I study the engineering of computing systems, writ broad. My primary interests are in software correctness, security, and usability. I apply a socio-technical philosophy – high-quality systems must be engineered using both human and technical perspectives. I am an empiricist; I always strive to measure the practical impact of problems and solutions.
