Research interests

My main research interests are Search-based Software Engineering (SBSE), Software refactoring, Model-Driven Engineering, Software maintenance and evolution, Software migration and Software testing. I am the founder of the SBSE-Michigan research group . My research page has more information about my ongoing research projects. I am always looking for students to work with, if you are interested feel free to contact me.


Short biography

Dr. Marouane Kessentini is an assistant professor in Software engineering at the University of Michigan, Dearborn campus. He received his PhD end of 2011 from University of Montreal. He is the founding director of the Search-based software engineering research lab in Michigan including now 1 post-doc, 7 PhD students and 8 master students. He has several collaborations with different industrial companies on studying software engineering problems by artificial intelligence techniques. Dr. Kessentini has three best paper awards and he also nominated for the best dissertation award in 2011 from University of Montreal. He is very active in the area of software refactoring with around 50 papers published in top Software Engineering journals and conferences including TSE, TOSEM, etc. Dr. Kessentini served as a program comittee member and chair of several software engineering conferences. He is also the founder of the North American SBSE conference that will be held in Michigan on February 2015 (funded by NSF).

Please consider to submit papers on your latest research work to the First North American Search Based Software Engineering Symposuim. I am program co-chair of GECCO2015 and genral chair of SSBSE2016. I am on the program committees of ICMT2015, SSBSE2015, COMPSAC2015 and guest editor of three SBSE special issues in ASE, EMSE and JSME Journals.

 

I am looking for a couple of motivated graduate students interested in Software Engineering research. Please send your resume, transcripts and published research materials to me.
