Welcome!

I am a computer science PhD student at UC Davis with Prof. Prem Devanbu. I study software as a form of communication between developers to understand how they write code and why they write it that way. My publications (mainly in software engineering), range from studying why software can act as communication, to how this can be modeled effectively, to what downstream applications and tools such models unlock. My work earned me a PhD fellowship with Microsoft Research, where I have also interned several times.

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. Contact me any time!
