Brief Details

I received a BA in Mathematics (Trinity College, Cambridge), and a Ph.D. in Computer Science (Brunel University). I then joined the Department of Mathematical and Computing Sciences at Goldsmiths College, University of London, as a lecturer in computer science before returning to Brunel University in 2000. I moved to The University of Sheffield in 2018. I have chaired or co-chaired several events, was the joint Editor of The Journal of Software Testing, Verification and Reliability For 11 years and am on the editorial board of Formal Aspects of Computing.

My main research largely concerns the automated generation of efficient, systematic test suites on the basis of program code, models or specifications. In recent years I have become increasingly interested in testing or autonomous systems. Please feel free to contact me if you are interested in studying for a Ph.D.
