Sarah is a full-time Computer Science PhD student at the University of Stirling in her first year. She is
supervised by Dr Gabriela Ochoa and Dr David Cairns and is funded
by the DAASE (Dynamic Adaptive Automated Software Engineering) project.
She is currently working on combinatorial fitness landscape analysis; in particular local optima networks. Outside of work her
interests include travel, physics, chemistry, and history. She is currently a lab demonstrator for a games development class which is done in Java and a masters-level evolutionary and heuristic optimisation class in Python. Please see below for her current CV and publications.
Room: Room 4B101, Cottrell Building, University of Stirling
