BioI am a Software Engineering PhD Student at the Institute for Software Research, School of Computer Science (SCS) at Carnegie Mellon University. I am fortunate to be advised by Christian Kästner.
My research focuses on Software Engineering, specifically on topics such as quality assurance, security, measurement, reuse, modularity, and automation.
I am currently working on bridging the gap between assurance and certification of complex software systems by investigating solutions related to compositionality, reuse, and automation to reduce the costs and improve the efficiency of current certification processes.
