I am an Assistant Professor in the Tandy School of Computer Science at The University of Tulsa. I received my Ph.D. from the department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln. I worked as a Research assistant in the Software Engineering group (ESQuaReD) under the supervision of Dr. Gregg Rothermel and Dr. Anita Sarma. I had a joint appointment as Post Doctoral Scholar at the school of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science of the Oregon State University, Corvallis and the University of Nebraska, Lincoln. I worked with Dr. Margaret Burnett.

Research Interests

Dr. Kuttal’s research interest lies at the intersection between software engineering and human-computer interactions. Her work is highly interdisciplinary, having co-authored papers with software engineers, human-computer interaction, and end-user software engineering scholars.

She envisions a society where people in technical problem-solving professions (experts, novice programmers, end-user programmers, and underrepresented communities) can gain access to software tools that no longer drain their capabilities, but rather support and advance them. Her research is highly interdisciplinary and focused towards supporting problem-solving professionals.
