Personal profile


I am Tanjila Kanij, working as a research fellow in the Faculty of Information Technology at Monash University. I have completed my PhD in software engineering in 2013 from Swinburne University of Technology. During my PhD I investigated whether software testers had different personality traits (compared to other stakeholders) and whether the traits had any influence on their performance. I also classified the responsibilities that software testers carry out and built a novel tool to assess software testers' performance. 


Research interests

My research interests include (however are not limited to) studying the effect of different human factors (not only personality!) on software engineering process, studying whether and/or to what extent these effects of human factors on the SE processes are accounted for and how we can best use these effects to build better software.
