Academic Bio

I am currently a Ph.D. student in Computer Science at the University of Alabama working in the area of Model-Driven Engineering. I am currently funded by a fellowship from the Department of Education (GAANN). I graduated with a M.S. in Computer Science from the University of Alabama in May of 2012. While working toward my M.S., I was funded by an Assistantship provided by Text-to-Art, an NSF grant.

While working toward my M.S. and Ph.D., I have been a member of the Software Engineering Group at the University of Alabama. I have taught several undergraduate classes at UA and have also been involved with several outreach programs in Tuscaloosa (e.g., assisting with coordinating an after-school program at local elementary schools).

I graduated with a B.S. in Computer Science from the University of Alabama in May of 2009. During this time, I participated in the Cooperative Education Program which consisted of three semesters working at AT&T with the DATA group, a part of AT&T Labs. Through the Cooperative Education Program I gained significant industry experience with small scale software engineering projects. I completed my undergraduate degree in 5 years, including three semesters in the Cooperative Education Program.


I was married to the love of my life, Stephanie Corley, in December of 2009. My wife and I are both originally from Birmingham, AL. We have been blessed with two children, Elizabeth Rose Corley and James Matthew Corley.
