I am a Software Engineering PhD student at Carnegie Mellon University’s Institute for Software Research in the School of Computer Science. I am advised by Laura Dabbish, Jim Herbsleb, and Bogdan Vasilescu and a proud member of the CoEx and STRUDEL teams.

I do research at the intersection of Human Computer Interaction and Software Engineering, on topics such as ethics and trust in Artificial Intelligence, diversity and inclusion in open source communities, and tool choice in dev ops environments. You can download my academic CV, and also view my Google Scholar profile.

I earned my BS in 2017 from the Robert D. Clark Honors College at the University of Oregon in Eugene, Oregon where I studied Computer and Information Science and Liberal Arts. I wrote my Undergraduate Thesis on the programming practices of scientific research programmers, and was advised by Professor Stephen Fickas.

I was born in Tillamook, Oregon but grew up in Berlin, Germany and Singapore. Apart from my research interests, I paint, run and advocate for student interests on the Dean’s PhD Student Advisory Committee.

I am always excited to meet new people and hear about new ideas and opportunities. Feel free to reach out!, or follow my Twitter:
