I am a research assistant in the Department of Computer Science and Software Engineering at Concordia University, Canada, where I work under the supervision of Prof. Emad Shihab as a member of the Data-driven Analysis of Software Lab (DAS). I consider myself a passionate developer who loves to do research that makes a difference and improves the lives of others. My general research area is Software Engineering. I am particularly interested in develop solutions that can help software practitioners improve their software. My work is well received and used by industry, and I often contribute to open-source projects.
