My research is focused on supporting software developers in managing bug reports. More specifically, I am interested the in the process of bug triaging and how it can be improved, especially within the context of large open source projects.
I am currently developing TeamBugs, a tool for exploring, organizing, and triaging large collections of bug reports. The ultimate goal is to help developers take on the task of sorting through and assigning bug reports by providing insights through patterns and relationships between bugs.
I also am the Chief Information Officer at Mirth Corporation and was a founding developer on Mirth Connect, a popular open source healthcare integration engine.
