Menzies, who joined the NC State faculty in 2014, was recognized for his contributions to software engineering for artificial intelligence.
His research focuses on software engineering (SE), data mining, AI optimization, and search-based SE, and better methods for open access science. He is the director of the NC State RAISE lab (real world AI for software engineering) and is the curator of the PROMISE repository (storage for SE project data).
Amongst his many awards, he received the Mining Software Repositories Foundational Contribution Award in 2017, the Carol Miller Graduate Lecturer Award in 2016, the IBM Faculty Award in 2016 and 2017, the LexisNexis Faculty Award in 2015, 2016 and 2017, and the Laboratory for Analytical Science funding in 2017 and 2018.
He received his B.S. in computer science, Master of Cognitive Science, and Ph.D. in cognitive science, all from the University of New South Wales.
