Mike Goodrich and Eric Mercer

Have you ever wondered if grad school is right for you?  Have you ever dreamed of becoming an expert, if not "the" expert, on some topic? Have you thought about how that depth of study might change you and the kinds of things you will be able to do for the rest of your career?

If so, please join Dr. Neha Rungta, who recently graduated with her Ph.D. from BYU, as she discusses her experiences as a grad student and in her work since graduation.  She will also answer commonly asked questions, and even some questions that should be asked but sometimes aren't.


Neha Rungta is a research scientist at NASA Ames Research Center in California. She is part of the Robust Software Engineering Group and her research focuses on verification techniques for software systems, including techniques for verifying concurrent programs and automated test case generation for sequential programs. Dr. Rungta graduated with a PhD in Computer Science from Brigham Young University in December 2009.
