I am currently a post-doctoral researcher at the Software Technology Group (STG) at the Technische Universität Darmstadt working with Prof. Mira Mezini. Before that, I was part of the Software Architecture Group (SWAG) at the University of Waterloo where I did my Masters and PhD with Prof. Richard C. Holt. My dissertation focused on detecting variability anomalies in software product lines and reverse engineering configuration constraints.

My research interests include empirical software engineering, support for software product lines, and providing automated support for software development and maintenance activities. You can find more details in my research page.
