Name:Madeline Endres

I’m a fourth-year computer science Ph.D. student at the University of Michigan where I am advised by Westley Weimer. Broadly, my research is at the intersection of software engineering and human factors where I am interested in exploring creativity, communication, and cognition. On the cognition side, I use neuroimaging and transfer-training-based experiments to study connections between natural language, spatial reasoning, and software engineering. As for communication, I have helped build and evaluate tools that automatically provide debugging hints for novices. I am also interested in how humans can best communicate scientific results, both of automatic patches and in other mediums such as Jupyter Notebooks. Finally, with respect to creativity, I am interested in understanding the diversity of human thought as expressed through programming. When I’m not working on research, I enjoy cooking, reading, traveling, hiking, and having long, overwrought conversations about moral philosophy, history, and astrophysics. I also play the cello, and I’m always up for improvising and swapping music recommendations!
