I am currently a Researcher at Microsoft Research. I received my bachelor's degree in CS from Brigham Young University in 2003. I've worked at Caldera, Lineo, Embedix, Motorola, and Freescale. I've also dabbled in the OSS world in the PyQt, Kate, and MoinMoin projects. In June, 2010 I finished my Ph.D. in Computer Science, studying empirical software engineering under my advisor Prem Devanbu at UC Davis. I'm currently working on ways to use data to guide decisions of stakeholders in large software projects.


I currently work with Thomas Zimmermann and Nachi Nagappan in the Empirical Software Engineering (ESE) group at Microsoft Research.
