About Me


I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer and Information Science at the University of Michigan-Dearborn. I got my PhD from the University of Texas at San Antonio in 2020. My research interest is in improving software development productivity. Some specific areas of interest to me are continuous integration, software build process, script code analysis, program repair and fault localization, software engineering tools for machine learning (SE4ML), and security vulnerability analysis for development tools.
