William G. Griswold
Professor, Computer Science and Engineering
Software engineering and ubiquitous computing, specializing in the construction of large, complex software systems, software design, aspect-oriented software development, mobile applications, and educational technology. Professor Griswold's research concerns the evolution and enhancement of large software systems, including the development of new programming tools, often aided by the application of advanced compiler technology. More recently, he has been investigating the engineering of ubiquitous computing systems. One current project is ActiveCampus, which integrates the use of mobile devices, location sensing, and high-speed wireless networking with new software infrastructure to enhance the "culture of learning" on campus and in the classroom. The widely used Ubiquitous Presenter educational application is an outgrowth of this project. Another current project is WIISARD, which concerns mobile wireless technology for medical response in disasters.
