I am a Research Assistant and PhD Candidate in Software Engineering in the Department of Computing and Software at McMaster University . I am co-supervised by Tom Maibaum (McMaster Centre for Software Certification) and Marsha Chechik (Department of Computer Science at the University of Toronto). I was previously a Research Engineer on the NECSIS (Network for the Engineering of Complex Software Intensive Systems) project, a joint collaboration between IBM, GM, Malina Software and eight Canadian universities. The project focused on using Model Driven Engineering in the automotive industry. I am also a previous IBMer and an advocate for increasing female participation in STEM.
