I am a PhD student in the Illinois Automated Software Engineering Group within the Programming Languages, Formal Methods, and Software Engineering (PL-FM-SE) area at Illinois CS. My adviser is professor Tao Xie.
My research interests encompass software engineering and software verification. Primarily, my research spans the area program analysis, test generation. My goal is to create software that push tedious software development tasks such as finding bugs onto computers. Ultimately, I wish to make industry impact by creating tools to help software developers create more reliable software.

I obtained a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Computer Science and Engineering with Magna Cum Laude Honors from The Ohio State University. During my time as an undergraduate, I participated in the Summer Research Opportunities Program (SROP) where I engaged in rigourous research experiences. This includes a stint at Purdue University with Professor Xiangyu Zhang and at the University of Iowa with Professor Aaron Stump.
