Wasif Afzal, Associate Professor


Wasif Afzal completed his M.Sc., Licentiate and Ph.D. in Software Engineering from Blekinge Institute of Technology (BTH), Sweden in 2007, 2009 and 2011 respectively. He was a post doctoral researcher at BTH between September 2011 and March 2012. From September 2011 to August 2013 he was also an assistant professor in software engineering at Bahria Univeristy, Islamabad, Pakistan. 

Wasif Afzal likes to do empirical research within software engineering in general and within software verification and validation in particular. Some keywords that describe his interests are (not exhaustive): software testing and quality assurance, prediction and estimation in software engineering, application of artificial intelligence techniques in software engineering (including search-based software engineering), decision-making based on software analytics, software metrics and evidential assessment of software engineering literature. Here is his Google Scholar profile.
