About
I'm a third-year PhD student in Computer Science at the University of Massachusetts Amherst working with Yuriy Brun in the PLASMA research group. I received a BA in Computer Science from Saint John's University, Collegeville, MN and a MSc in Computer Science from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, MA.

My research is in software engineering, and I am interested in techniques that give developers actionable insight into their systems. More broadly, I seek to apply novel methods from various fields to produce more intuitive and efficient software systems.
Projects
with Ivan Beschastnikh, Yuriy Brun, Ryan Stanley, Michael Herzberg, Sebastian Fiss, Armand Halbert, and Marc Palyart
Perfume summarizes a system's logged executions in a precise, finite-state machine model that conveys the system's resource usage characteristics. These models can help developers understand system behavior that depends on metrics like execution time, network traffic, or energy consumption.
Past Projects
PIY: Efficient Source Code Plagiarism Detection
with Imad Rahal
Existing source code plagiarism detection systems target small submission sets, such as code from a single university's courses. PIY utilizes a NUMA-optimized, data clustering approach to retain both reasonable runtimes and high detection accuracy even with extremely large source code repositories.
