I am a Ph.D. student in the computer science program at Iowa State University (ISU). Currently, I work as a research assistnat at the laboratory for software design with my supervisor, Dr. Hridesh Rajan. Before I decided to move to ISU, I was enrolled at UND and took some graduate-level courses for a year. Prior to that, I received my undergraduate degree in Software Engineering from Addis Ababa Science and Technology University, where I graduated Magna cum laude.


My research interests mostly entail concepts from software engineering and program analysis to enhance deep learning models and LLMs. Specifically, I explore static analysis methodologies i) to mitigate bugs in deep-learning models and ii) to improve the performance of LLMs on source code representation. Prior to that, I worked on a shared data science infrastructure for bioinformatics,Boag.
