Growing up a cowherd in rural Germany, I completed a PhD in Computer Science at the University of Victoria in 2012 and am now working as a postdoctoral researcher at McGill University. My work strives to advance software development by conducting research on the automated analysis of software documentation and recommendation systems. In my PhD research, I studied the role of social media artifacts, such as tags or the popular Q&A website Stack Overflow, in collaborative software development.
