Hi there!

I am an Assistant Professor in the Computer Science Department at Boise State University. I completed my Ph.D. work under the supervision of Dr. Jeffrey Carver at the University of Alabama. My research interests lie in the area of Software Engineering, which includes Empirical Software Engineering, Research Software Engineering, Software Quality Assurance such as Software Testing, Peer Code Review, and Software Metrics, and Software Engineering Education.

***I'm looking for a couple of PhD students to join my lab beginning Spring/Fall 2022. If you are interested in research in the broad area of Software Engineering and Machine Learning, please email me your resume and test scores.
