Dr. Justin F. Brunelle


My name is Justin F. Brunelle (@justinfbrunelle). I am a graduate of Old Dominion University in the Computer Science Program. I graduated from Ocean Lakes High School in 2004 and from ODU in 2008, 2010, and 2016.

I received my PhD under the direction of Dr. Michael Nelson. My dissertation (defense slides) studies JavaScript-dependent representations on the web and recommends a two-tiered crawling framework to help expose more of their information and embedded resources to crawlers. In the academic community, I am a regular contributor to internationally respected data, web, and library science conferences and journals. I also serve on the program committees of the same conferences.

My spare time is filled with ODU athletic events, pick-up basketball, water sports, and playing with my dog, wife, and son. I also like Ford vehicles and brewing beer in my garage.

Current Work:

I am currently working as a Lead Researcher at The MITRE Corporation in Hampton, VA. My work studies emerging technologies (e.g., cloud, mobile, big data, Internet of Things) in government domains. I lead STEM outreach efforts in the Hampton Roads area, mentor students at the high school and university levels, and collaborate with academics on research projects. I also am the chair of the Federal Cloud Summit and coordinate all of the Federal Technology Summits at MITRE.

My resume is accessible here, and my CV is available here.
I have several publications which can be viewed under the Publications link in the menu to the left.
