Welcome!

I am a computer science PhD student at UC Davis with Prof. Prem Devanbu. I study software as a means of communication, using methods from computational linguistics, deep learning, data mining, cognitive science and traditional software engineering to understand how people write code and why they write it that way. Check out my research statement, publications, previous and ongoing collaborations, or contact me.

Outside of my studies, I am happily married to my wife Kaari (our family includes the cutest cat), I love hiking and generally being outdoors (trying and failing to capture nature's splendor with my camera), and almost always thinking (and happy to talk) about new ideas, both in and outside my field.
