If you dont' _need_ to include Java in your thesis, why not help with
PyPy? It's the Python interpreter written in Python. It's regarded as
a important piece of software for experimentation with the Python
language itself. Give it a look:

p.s. There is a rumour that the PyPy team secretly believes that they
can make it run *faster* than CPython. Does it makes it a good thesis?
