My research interests are in the area of software engineering, with emphasis on developing novel techniques, methods, and tools to assist software developers manage the challenges encountered when creating, maintaining, or evolving software systems. In 2007, my research paper on tracking code duplication in evolving software, co-authored with my supervisor, was awarded the ACM SIGSOFT Distinguished Paper Award at the International Conference on Software Engineering, the premier software engineering conference.

My PhD work is funded by an NSERC Alexander Graham Bell Canada Graduate Scholarship (CGS D), a McGill University Dean's Excellence Award, and by my supervisor, Prof. Martin Robillard.
