Hi, I’m Nischal! I’m currently a software engineer at American Research Associates working on web services. Previously, I worked at Posit (formerly RStudio) where I built autograding tools for Python in Academy. I have also worked on OSS like learnr or ggcheck for autograding, and Unravel for exploring and learning about code.

I did my PhD in Computer Science at North Carolina State University from 2016-2022 where I explored just-in-time learning tools for data science programming with Chris Parnin in the alt-code lab. You can read my dissertation to learn more!

Outside of work, I enjoy running, powerlifting, watching/discussing tv shows/movies, exploring new places, and listening to or making music, and coding for fun.
