About Me

In May of 2017 I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science at Washington University in St. Louis. Under the supervision of Dr. Caitlin L. Kelleher, I investigated leveraging completion problems to help enable middle school to learn computer programming independently. If you would like to know more about my work, checkout my publications or CV. Alternatively, you can also download a copy of the novice programming environment, Looking Glass, and try out my work!

I am an avid user of open source software. I try to contribute back when I have time. You can checkout some of my contributions at github.
