I am a PhD candidate in SEGAL at the University of Victoria. I hold a Bachelor of Computer Science (Business option) from the University of Waterloo, Ontario and a Master of Mathematics, also from the University of Waterloo, under the supervision of Dr. Daniel Berry. I spent 12+ years working in the software engineering industry in various countries prior to joining SEGAL in August, 2018.

My research is focused on solving practical industry specific software engineering problems, with an emphasis on requirements engineering. I also focus my efforts on helping train the computer scientists of tomorrow to succeed in the software engineering realm in the real-world.
