Biography:

Vahid Garousi is a Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) of Software Engineering in Queen’s University Belfast, UK. He has an international work experience in his profile, as he previously worked as an Associate Professor of Software Engineering in the following universities: Wageningen University in the Netherlands (2017-2019), Hacettepe University in Turkey (2015-2017), and University of Calgary, in Canada (2006-2014). Dr. Garousi received his PhD in Software Engineering in Carleton University, Canada, in 2006.

His research expertise are: software engineering, software testing, empirical studies, action-research, and industry-academia collaborations. In 2018, a bibliometric study published in the Journal of Systems and Software ranked Dr. Garousi as the 8th most-active "consolidated" software engineering researcher world-wide, among about 4,000+ active researchers in software engineering who have published in top-quality journals. Dr. Garousi has published more than 120 papers, so far, in prestigous conferences and journals. Dr. Garousi was selected as a Distinguished Speaker for the IEEE Computer Society from 2012 to 2015.

He is a member of the IEEE and the IEEE Computer Society, and is also a licensed professional engineer (PEng) in the Canadian province of Alberta. In parallel to his academic career, he is a practicing software engineering consultant and coach, and has provided consultancy and corporate training services in several countries in the areas of software testing and quality assurance, model-driven development, and software maintenance.

During his career so far, Vahid has served as the principal investigator (PI) for several research grants and has been active in initiating a number of major R&D software engineering projects with software companies in several countries including Canada and Turkey. He has been involved as an organizing or program committee member in many international conference, such as ICST, ICSP, CSEE&T, MoDELS and the Turkish National Software Engineering Conference. Among his awards is the prestigious Alberta Ingenuity New Faculty Award in June 2007.
