Welcome to my personal page!
You must be already knowing me or seeking to know me. So here is what I do.
I am currently working as Professional Teaching Fellow in the School of Computer Science at the University of Auckland, Auckland, New Zealand. Previously, I worked as Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Dr B R Ambedkar National Institute of Technology, Jalandhar (Punjab), India.
I received my Ph.D. degree in Computer Science and Engineering from Guru Nanak Dev University, Amritsar (Punjab), India, in 2011 and my M.Tech. degree in Computer Science and Engineering from Panjab University Chandigarh, India, in 2005.
I have 15 years of work experience including both academia and industry. I published more than 50 research papers in refereed international journals, conference and workshop proceedings. I am a member of the IEEE and the IEEE Computer Society, ACM SIGCSE, and a life member of ISTE. My broad research interests include software engineering, computer science education, and secure systems.
I have supervised two PhD and 35 masters thesis to completion. I have served on several program committee and reviewing boards for software engineering venues including JSS, ICSE companions, IET, IST, EASE, APSEC, and ISEC.
I am currently a member of the SOFTware Engineering Research (SOFTER) and the Computing Education and Learning Technologies (CELT) groups in the School of Computer Science at the University of Auckland.
More about me:
I like to spend most of my time teaching courses and managing research pertaining to various subareas of software engineering domain. I believe in collaborative work, and have been fortunate to have worked in the company of several brilliant young and experienced people.
I am quite interested in global research collaborations for finding innovative solutions to critical and challenging software development and maintenance problems.
My SE research interests are listed here.
To the people working in IT industry/academia, I invite you to get in touch. Your valuable industry/research experience can play a major role in enabling the young and budding student developers and research scholars with the all important knowledge related to the software development/maintenance processes, methods and technologies being practiced in software Industry, and in turn helping them focus toward more meaningful research work. Please join and contribute with your knowledge and experience.
I also invite young student developers and SE researchers to join and be a part of the discussions.
Always looking to give back to the software engineering community, I am keen to serve on the organizing, review and program committees of various events responsible for the progress of software engineering research.
