This interdisciplinary project touches on literature in Spanish, urban studies and cultural politics in Latin America to study public reading programs and alternative publishing in Latin American cities. I am studying the role of reading and visual images in urban public interactions in cities in Colombia, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Mexico and Peru. Examples of these projects under examination include public short story contests, free books given out on buses and subways, the expansion (...)

Compilers are crucial components of the computing ecosystem transforming rich abstractions in many source languages into multiple target architectures. Compiler bugs break all the verification guarantees at the source code level and can lead to disasters in safety-critical domains. Although testing can reduce such errors, testing is infeasible for all inputs with richer abstractions and targets. In contrast to testing, formal verification can provide robust assurances. The goal of this (...)

The aim of this project is to build a comprehensive database of the literary sources that Bram Stoker used, or possibly used, in the composition of his iconic novel Dracula. Initial construction of this resource has steadily proceeded this past Fall 2014 and Spring 2015 semesters, and our work in progress is hosted on a Rutgers OIT server enabling us to utilize high speed search and retrieval software. The texts forming the core of this project fall into four categories. First are (...)

The project involves the composition of an English-Spanish cognate lexicon. The underlying idea is to "leverage" the shared Latin heritage of English and the Romance languages so as to allow English speakers to more easily recognize foreign terms. For example, in English words that came directly from Latin the letter "f" will often correspond to Spanish "h" (refuse=rehusar [=to decline]; fumes-humo [=smoke]; fiber-hebra). By offering a robust list of these correspondences, English students (...)
