Reyhaneh JabbarvandCell phones and batteries are a part of our everyday life. While energy is a major concern for users, many mobile apps still abound with energy defects and developers find it difficult to properly evaluate the energy behavior of their programs. The root cause of this issue is that there is a lack of tools and techniques aimed at addressing energy concerns.

The UCI Donald Bren School of Information and Computer Sciences (ICS) has two graduate awards geared towards supporting software engineering students. Are you interested in supporting our students through these awards?
