Ayaan Kazerouni



I'm a PhD candidate in the Department of Computer Science at Virginia Tech. I am engaged in research related to Computer Science Education, with a focus in Educational Data Mining and Software Engineering. I'm an international student from Mumbai, India, and have been living and studying in the United States since 2011.

At Virginia Tech I am a research assistant working under the co-advisement of Cliff Shaffer and Steve Edwards. My primary area of interest is Computer Science Education, with a focus in Software Engineering.

I work on methods to objectively characterise the programming process so that CS educators may examine the sequences of activity that lead to better outcomes on programming projects, and therefore formulate and deploy effective, timely feedback that could help developers in danger of straying from best practices.
