Scholarship of Outreach

 

The Scholarship of Outreach is about taking theories and concepts developed in the lab, reducing them to practice and then successfully applying them in the real world.  This work must be externally and rigorously evaluated.  My Scholarship of Outreach has been demonstrated by applying my concepts and theories that have been disseminated through academic publications in real world organizations, by creating 3 patents, by developing enabling technologies (such as the Process Analysis Tradeoff Tool (PATT) software, by obtaining a high level of grant funding (15 grants, $1.15 Million), by participating in practitioner oriented consortia (such as the NSF sponsored Software Engineering Research Center (SERC)) and finally by commercializing these technologies through Quantel, Inc. a PSU/Private joint venture.
