I am a Master of Computer Science student at the University of Victoria under the co-supervision of Dr. Daniela Damian and Dr. Neil Ernst. I hold an undergraduate degree in computer science (Software engineering option) and a Business minor from the University of Victoria. I  joined SEGAL Labs as an undergraduate researcher in April 2018 and was able to transition into my current program.

Currently, my research is focused on non-functional requirements in an organization that practices continuous integration, continuous delivery, and continuous deployment. Specifically, I am researching organizational practices aimed to adhere to privacy regulations such as the GDPR and testing privacy non-functional requirements.

Special thanks to Mitacs for partially sponsoring my research.
