 I am a Systems Scientist at the Institute of Software Research, Carnegie Mellon University. Most of my work is conducted in the context of squaresLab.

Prior to joining CMU, I received my PhD in Computer Science from the University of York, UK, for my thesis on search-based program repair, under the supervision of Prof. Susan Stepney.

My research interests lie in search-based software engineering and testing; specifically, I develop techniques for automatically detecting, locating, and repairing faults in large-scale, real-world software systems. Since coming to CMU, my focus has been on applying such techniques to the domain of robotics systems, with a particular emphasis on autonomous vehicles.
