Education > Computer Science Honours


My second degree was the year-long Computer Science Honours program at RMIT city campus. The program includes research methods, four elective courses and a minor thesis. My thesis topic was "Efficient and Effective Plagiarism Detection for Large Code Repositories". The thesis was later written up and accepted for publication in the Software: Practice and Experience journal (see my publications page). I graduated on 15 December 2004. More information about the Computer Science Honours program can be found here.
