I am a PhD student researching and building interactive data analytic systems as part of the BAD Lab under advisor Dr. Leilani Battle. Before entering the program, I spent four years as a software developer at Microsoft, actively working on client side software in the Windows Phone and Skype for Business divisions, which got me invested in prioritizing user experience in system development. I've also spent two years working on personal start-up projects, which planted the motivational seeds for my current research.
I am currently embarked on a project called Code Code Evolution, which uses quantitative methods to analyze Jupyter Notebooks, the most popular data analysis tool used by analysts today, to better understand and predict user behavior. By doing so, analysts at all experience levels can derive meaningful insights from their datasets which they can use to build better tools and systems for analysts.
I am proud Terp alum! I graduated from the University of Maryland with undergraduate degrees in Computer Science and Economics.
