I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute for Software Research in Carnegie Mellon’s School of Computer Science. My advisor is James Herbsleb.

My research spans across the fields of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), Computer-Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW), and Social Computing. My current research at CMU broadly covers large-group collaboration in a networked digital environment. The collaborations that I have studied to date have taken place either:

  • in open-text projects where people on the Web who may or may not be a part of the core authorship group co-produce text artifacts
  • in events known as hackathons, datathons, etc. on GitHub, where teams of programmers or designers work on developing projects that they are interested in

I earned my PhD in Information Science and MSc in Information Systems from Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore, and a BSc (Hons) in Computer Science from the University of Computer Studies in Yangon, Myanmar. Prior to joining PhD program at NTU Singapore, I was an application consultant at NCS Pte Ltd in Singapore.

My work has been published in academic conferences and journals including ACM CSCW, CHI, Behaviour and Information Technology, Computers in Human Behavior, Journal of the Association of Information Science and Technology (JASIST), and IEEE Software.
