About me

Who Am I?

Hi I'm Safwat Hassan. Currently, I am working as a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Software Evolution & Analytics Lab (SEAL) at Queen's University. In 2018, I completed my Ph.D. degree at Queen's University under the supervision of Prof. Ahmed E. Hassan.

Before starting my Ph.D. study, I worked as a software engineer for ten years in different corporations including the Egyptian Space Agency (ESA), HP, EDS, VF Germany (outsourced by HP), and Etisalat. During my ten years in the software industry, I worked on a variety of software systems, such as web-based systems and embedded systems. I also participated in diverse project roles (e.g., design service, customer support, and R&D) across multiple business domains (e.g., telecommunication, supply-chain, and aerospace).
