About me

I am a PhD Candidate of computer science with the Systopia Lab at The University of British Columbia. My research interests include data provenance, research reproducibility, and systems broadly construed. I am currently exploring methods that make reproducibility more accessible for research programmers by using data provenance from different sources. I also dabble in evaluating how users can interact with and comprehend provenance data. I have previously worked on provenance-based debuggers, nano-satellite computer systems, geospatial public health analyses, and bringing technology to theater.
