Andrea Chamorro presents a research posterCU Boulder McNair Scholar Andrea Chamorro took home the second place prize in a graduate-level juried competition at the 2018 Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers’ International Conference on Software Maintenance and Evolution in Madrid, Spain. Chamorro conducted research at a Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) site at CSU this past summer making a tool called WikifyDocs, which uses Wikipedia to define ambiguous terminology in software documentation in order to make it more accessible for early to mid-range developers. The project was funded by Colorado-Wyoming Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (CO-WY AMP) and access to the opportunity was facilitated by the BOLD Center in the Engineering Department. Andrea, a sophomore computer science major, is the only female presenter, and the youngest, to have presented at this year’s DocGen (documentation generation) competition, which drew teams from as far as China, the UK, and Japan.
