Research Interests
Craig has recently completed his PhD thesis entitled "Patterns of Change: Can Modifiable Software Have High Coupling?."

I am interested in improving development and maintenance of medium and large-scale software systems. Software systems are subject to constant change pressures and because of this, they must remain flexible. The evolution of a software system is heavily dependent on its structure.

The field of network theory has been used to analyze complex systems in a variety of different fields and has shown that specific structural characteristics contribute greatly to the evolvability of the system. It is my goal to validate network theory as a viable mechanism for evaluating the evolvability of software systems.
