Suraj’s research interests lie in the areas of model-based software engineering, ontology, semantic web and pedagogy. He is the principal investigator of a jointly funded research project in model-based software engineering with GE Aviation. The project is looking at effective ways to capture high-level requirements in an unambiguous machine interpretable format and automate generation of test cases. He is supervising Oyindamola Olajubu who is a research student working on this project.
Suraj is also interested in pedagogy in the areas of assessment and feedback. He has obtained several undergraduate research bursaries at Northampton to work on automated marking and feedback of assessments to enhance student learning, experience and engagement.
Suraj also supervises two other research students:
- Tom Butler – working on creating a metric to measure software quality in object-oriented programming.
- Naktal Edan – investigating methods to improve existing communication protocols in mobile health systems.
Suraj has experience of working in Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) and other industrial research projects involving Rolls-Royce and BAE Systems. He welcomes doctoral proposals in the areas of software engineering, applied computing and pedagogical research.
