Prasanta Bose


Prasanta Bose's research is focused on process models and their automated support for collaboration and negotiation in distributed engineering of complex software. His research on collaborative process models and their support builds on the Win-Win Spiral Model for incremental and concurrent requirements and design decision making. His research on supporting collaborative design focuses on:

Prasanta received his M.S. degree from University of Massachusetts in 1983, and his Ph.D. degree from USC in 1993, all in Computer Science. Between 1983 and 1987, he served as Member of Technical staff, with the Texas Instruments' Corporate Research Laboratory. He is currently a Research Asisstant Professor at the Department of Computer Science, USC and a principal at the Center for Software Engineering
