Here is my full research statement.

In short, my research is concerned with understanding the challenges that software developers face in performing their tasks, and to design tools that reduce errors and improve productivity. I take a human-centric approach, empirically studying developers to inspire and evaluate tools. I am interested in a variety of different programming populations, including experienced professionals, new computer science graduates, and end-user programmers.

Here are some of the current and recent projects that I have worked on:


I am currently an Assistant Professor in Computer Science at the University of Memphis. From 2009 to 2011, I did a post-doc at Oregon State University with Margaret Burnett. I received a PhD in computer science from Michigan State University in 2009. From 2001 to 2003, I worked full-time as a computer-science instructor at Western Michigan University. I received an MS in computer science and a BA in fine art from WMU in 2001 and 1999, respectively.
