I am a postdoctoral researcher studying software build systems in the Software REBELs Lab at the University of Waterloo under the supervision of Prof. Shane McIntosh. My primary research interests lie in empirical software engineering, mining software repositories, software APIs, build systems, software performance, and bug-detection. My doctoral thesis focused on reducing knowledge gaps between the users and developers of software APIs. I obtained my Ph.D. from Concordia University (2020), M.Eng degree from Concordia University (2017), and my B.Eng in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at McGill University (2013).
