Clint Jeffery completed his bachelor's degree with folks like Notkin and Lazowska at Washington, and his master's and doctorate under Ralph Griswold at Arizona, finishing in 1993. His doctoral research developed a framework for program execution monitoring, with a substantial subcomponent examining very high level language support for graphics and program visualization. Jeffery then joined the faculty at UT San Antonio where his time was spent extending his research products to include monitoring C programs and Win32 graphics, and where he was fortunate to co-direct an NSF minority institution infrastructure project. In 1999, Jeffery joined the faculty at UNLV where he developed the Unicon programming language with support from the National Library of Medicine at NIH, a project which has continued to this day. In 2001, Jeffery joined the faculty at New Mexico State University where he had the opportunity to broaden his execution monitoring work into the field of automatic debugging and was fortunate to obtain NSF support for a project in the area of educational collaborative virtual environments.
