Research in software engineering at the OU recognises the ubiquity of ‘software in the world’ through investigations that challenge disciplinary boundaries in order to empower users and developers. Through this work, we advance several interrelated software engineering areas: automated software engineering; security, privacy and digital forensics; engineering adaptive software; and empirical studies of software development. The multidisciplinary nature of our research has led to deep and sustained collaborations with researchers from other disciplines including psychology, business and law.
