I am a lecturer of software engineering at the Centre of Research on Evolution, Search and Testing (CREST), located in the Department of Computer Science, University College London. I am also part of UCL's Systems and Software Engineering Group.
My main research interests are in the areas of Mutation Testing, Mining Mobile App Store and Genetic Improvement (GI). I also have a broad range of research interests around the area of Search-Based Software Engineering (SBSE) in which software engineering tasks are represented as optimisation problems and solved with automated techniques.
Fully funded PhD studentships: UCL CREST centre is offering three separate (fully funded) PhD studentships, all of which involve a combination of computational search in software testing/engineering. Closing date for applications 4th January 2016. Links to further information for each: GIEDE: Genetic Improvement of software systems with Explained Decision Experiments.
