Current Research

Dr. Hill's research focuses on techniques for evaluating and validating quality-of-service (QoS) properties of enterprise distributed systems continuously throughout its software lifecycle, as opposed to waiting until complete system integration time (i.e., late in the software lifecycle). His research has led to an open-source artifact named CUTS, which is used by several industrial partners, such as Australian DoD, BBN Technologies, Boeing, General Electric Research, Raytheon, and Lockheed Martin Advanced Technology Labs.
