Jane Cleland-Huang received the PhD degree in computer science from the University of Illinois at Chicago. She is an associate professor in the School of Computing at DePaul University, where she serves as the director of the Systems and Requirements Engineering Center. She also serves as the North American Director of the International Center of Excellence for Software Traceability.
Her research interests include requirements engineering with an emphasis on the application of machine learning and information retrieval methods to automate software traceability. She has served as PI on research grants funded at over $3.7 Million, including the NSF CAREER award, a $2 Million NSF Major Research Instrumentation award, and projects with Siemens Corporate Research, Microsoft, Lockheed Martin and SERC (the Software Engineering Research Consortium).
She has been awarded the ACM SIGSOFT Distinguished Paper Award at the International Conference on Software Engineering (2010, 2011, and 2012) and at the International Conference on Automated Software Engineering (2010), the Manfred Paul TC2 Manfred Paul Award for Excellence in Software: Theory and Practice (2006), and two additional best research paper awards at the International Requirements Engineering Conference (2002,2007).
