Personal profile

Biography

Aldeida's research interests are in the area of Automated Software Engineering, which aims at creating machines that write software, from requirements elicitation, to design, code generation, testing, and finally code repair. This involves the application and advancement of novel Artificial Intelligence and optimisation techniques.
