About Me

I am currently an Associate Professor, Acting Director of CUIDS (until July 2021), and a Graduate Director (Admission and Recruitment) at the School of Computer Science, Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada. I was an Assistant Professor during 2015-2020.

Prior to joining Carleton, I was a faculty member at the Department of Computer Science and Operations Research (DIRO), Université de Montréal and a member of the GEODES Software Engineering Research Group (2014-2015). In addition, I was a Visiting Professor (2014-2015) at the Data Science Laboratory, Ryerson University, Canada. I completed a short Natural Sciences and 
Engineering Research Council of Canada postdoctoral fellowship (2014) at the University of Toronto working with Dr. Steve Easterbrook. I recieved my PhD (2014) and Master's (2006) degrees in Computer Science at the David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science, University of Waterloo, Canada. My PhD work was co-supervised by Dr. Michael W. Godfrey and Dr. Reid Holmes.

My research interests span a wide range of software engineering, including empirical software engineering, mining software repositories, data science, data analytics, software analytics, software maintenance and evolution, and human aspects of software engineering. Much of my work focuses on understanding how software engineers create, use and maintain software systems.
