I am a Lecturer in the School of Engineering and Advanced Technology - Manawatu Campus. I hold a PhD degree from the Department of Information Science, University of Otago and a MSc in Software Engineering from Staffordshire University, My PhD was supervised by Prof Stephen MacDonell and Prof Michael Winikoff, I also spent couple of years at the Software Engineering Research Laboratory at Auckland University of Technology, and at the Department of Software Engineering, University of Malaya in Kuala Lumpur.
I am interested in several areas of Empirical Software Engineering including (but not limited to): software testing, software maintenance, reengineering and evolution, data analytics (through mining software repertories), software quality, requirements engineering and Agile and lean software development methods. My current research focuses on understanding software systems, and more precisely, understanding unit tests. I'm also studying fault and change prediction models.
