Personal details

I am an associate professor in the Department of Informatics at the University of Leicester.

My research revolves around the development and application of Machine Learning and Data Analysis algorithms to established problems in the domain of Software Engineering and Quality Assurance.

I am currently also a visiting academic at the University of Sheffield.

Before coming to Leicester in 2010, I spent five years as a post-doctoral researcher with the Verification and Testing group in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Sheffield.

Before that I'd spent three years studying my PhD in the software engineering group (now SoSyg) in the department of Computer and Information Sciences at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow.

Current program/scientific committees

  • The International Conference on Software Testing, 2018 (ICST'18)
  • The International Conference on Runtime Verification, 2017 (RV'17)
  • The International Workshop on Automation in Software Testing, Austin, Texas (AST 2017)

Teaching

I am the convenor for courses on Software Systems Reengineering and Software Quality Assurance and Measurement.

I am in the extremely fortunate position to be lecturing in two modules that happen to be at the centre of my research interests:

  • Systems Re-engineering (CO7206) deals with the problem of understanding and maintaining legacy software systems.
  • Software Quality and Metrics (CO3095/7095) deals with the challenge of quality assessment and assurance.

These have both recently been made available as distance learning modules.
