Research Interests

I have done research regarding fix-inducing changes in large software projects, using social data and data mining techniques to construct socio-technical networks among developers. My most current research is with the Aduno project.  An open-source, real time collaboration tool for task creation and articulation in a group.  More information on the project can be found at the project’s github, or the project’s homepage.
