I am a PhD student in the Department of Computer Science at Oakland University, advised by M Bagherzadeh. I’m broadly interested in Software Engineering and Artificial Intelligence. My current research is focused on mutation analysis of message passing concurrency models.

I completed my Master of Science degree within the Computer Science department at the University of Illinois. During this period, my research focus was centered around conducting sentiment analysis on Twitter data in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Hobbies: Tennis, volunteering, boating.
