Hey There! I'm Jason Tsay*.

I'm a Software Engineering PhD student at Carnegie Mellon University.

I study how software developers make use of information to coordinate in information-rich environments like GitHub.

Feel free to contact me, or if you're looking to learn more about what I do, please check out my CV and publications.
