Ph.D. Candidate

Delft University of Technology

My name is Pouria Derakhshanfar. I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Software Engineering Research Group (SERG) of the Delft University of Technology. I started my Ph.D. in 2017 under the supervision of Prof. Andy Zaidman and Prof. Arie van Deursen. As part of the EU Software Testing AMPlification (STAMP) project, I developed new search-based approaches for crash replication and test amplification in a DevOps context. Currently, I am involved in the collaboration between TU Delft and the ING research lab.
