Research interests

My research interests are on software testing, model-driven engineering and novel methods for engineering education. Within software testing, I am especially interested in automated software engineering, and I have experience with the combination of search-based approaches with mutation testing.

In model-driven engineering, I am interested in the design and implementation of scalable domain-specific languages for very large systems, and the use of non-standard approaches to persist and query object-oriented models.

In terms of engineering education, I have worked on the design of multiple active learning activities to drive "softer" skills, such as the use of multiple-round competitions to motivate students to learn how to read code. As part of the Institute of Coding, I am the Technical Director of Beautiful Canoe, a student-powered social enterprise that provides students with experience on developing real software for real clients and working as part of a team.
