Software systems are relied upon in almost every area of life, but inadequate software testing contributes to an annual cost of nearly $59.5 billion. Chen interned at the Naval Research Laboratory as part of the Science and Engineering Apprentice Program (SEAP), so she got to see first-hand how important this testing becomes for things like submarines. Chen created a software testing tool that she hopes will improve how systems are tested, thereby making our world a safer place.
