I am an NSERC PDF
postdoctoral researcher in the CCIS
at Northeastern University
, working with Dr. Frank Tip
I received my PhD from the ECE
Department, University of British Columbia (UBC)
I was a member of SALT Lab
, advised by Dr. Ali Mesbah
and Dr. Karthik Pattabiraman
My research is in the
area of software engineering, with a focus on program analysis, comprehension, and debugging.
At the conjunction of software engineering, programming languages, and human-computer
interaction, my research aims at improving performance of developers in comprehension and
debugging activities. To this end, I create semi-automated techniques for facilitating comprehension
and detecting bugs, helping developers understand the dynamic behaviour and sources
of errors in programs. The outcome of my work is typically open-source tools with interactive
visualizations, which I evaluate through controlled experiments with developers in realistic settings.
Results show that my methods signicantly improve the performance of developers in
their everyday tasks.
