New Faculty: Dr. Bonita Sharif

Dr. Bonita Sharif
Assistant Professor
Computer Science and Information Systems

Dr. Sharif started teaching classes at YSU this fall after serving as Adjunct Assistant Professor at Ohio University. She has conducted research in empirical software engineering and program comprehension and has experience in software visualization to support maintenance of large systems and eye-tracking research related to software engineering.

She received her MS in 2003 and Ph.D. in 2010 from Kent State University. Her dissertation work involved controlled experiments and eye-tracking studies evaluating the impact of layout on the comprehension of Unified Modeling Language class diagrams.

Dr. Sharif hopes to be a valuable asset to YSU’s growing masters program in Computing and Information Systems by contributing her knowledge of software engineering. She said, “I enjoy working with students, and my research is accessible to them.” She looks forward to building collaborative relationships with the other departments and promoting the software engineering expertise of students and faculty.
