Hello World!

My name is Makayla Moster and I am a Ph.D. candidate studying Computer Science at Clemson University. In the summer of 2020, I joined the Human Factors Software Engineering (HFSE) lab under the guidance of Dr. Paige Rodeghero. I graduated from the University of North Carolina Wilmington with my B.S. with Honors in Computer Science in May 2019. I completed my M.S. in Computer Science in May 2021 and am now focused on finishing my Ph.D. In my spare time, I am an avid reader, tie dye enthusiast, caretaker of my plethora of houseplants, and hobby crocheter.
