"Working with data allows MDS students to play with knowledge. The MDS program is an amazing opportunity for them to expand their skillset and knowledge and make an impact in today’s world. I’m glad to be part of this program." 

My research work focuses on empirical software studies that mine the development historical data of software systems. I use a combination of quantitative and qualitative techniques to understand the problem and determine approaches that can help to solve it. Specifically, I research the technical and non-technical aspects in software engineering with the aim of improving software development processes and practices, and increasing diversity in online communities.
