About Me

I am a Professor of Software Engineering at the Centre for Research on Evolution, Search and Testing (CREST), located in the Department of Computer Science, University College London (profile). I am a member of the SOLAR group. My current research focuses on Genetic Improvement. I also have expertise in Combinatorial Interaction Testing, Constraint Satisfaction and Search-Based Software Engineering.

I serve on the Editorial Board for the Journal of Systems and Software, Empirical Software Engineering, Genetic Programming and Evolvable Machines, Automated Software Enigineering (Deputy Editor-in-Chief) and Engineering Applications of Artificial Intelligence journals. Please consider submitting your work to these venues :) You can find more information on the GPEM blog, EMSE and ASE webpages. I am also a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and UCL Arena.

I held an EPSRC Early Career Fellowship on Automated Software Specialisation Using Genetic Improvement (2017-2023). More details can be found on the EPSRC and the project's websites. I also maintain the Genetic Improvement website, where you can learn more about this research area.
