I’m a Ph.D. candidate under the guidance of Margaret-Anne Storey at the University of Victoria and a member of the CHISEL group. I focus on software engineering, studying the interplay between developers, tools, their activities, and how it affects collaboration and communication. My current research aims to form a theory of knowledge in software engineering.

Prior to that, under the guidance of Amiram Yehudai and the mentorship of Ohad Barzilay, I studied opportunistic software development by building and evaluating a social media code recommendation system.

During summer of 2016, I’ve visited the Software Engineering Research Group (SERG) at Delft University of Technology.

I’m also very much interested in early-stage startups.
