Yue Jia @ UCL
Lecturer (Assistant Professor) | CS Dept, SSE Group, CREST

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 office is Room 5.03 in Malet Place Engineering Building, University College London, Gower Street, London WC1E 6BT, UK. You can email me (yue.jia@ucl.ac.uk) or tweet to me.

research interests

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.
