Dr. Marouane Kessentini is an assistant professor in Software engineering at the University of Michigan, Dearborn campus. He received his PhD in 2012 from University of Montreal. He is the founding director of the Search-based software engineering research lab in Michigan. He has several collaborations with different industrial companies on studying software engineering problems by artificial intelligence techniques.  He is very active in the area of software refactoring with around 100 papers published in top Software Engineering journals and conferences including TSE, TOSEM, etc. Dr. Kessentini served as a program comittee member and chair of several software engineering conferences. He is also the founder of the North American SBSE conference that will be held in Michigan on February 2015 (funded by NSF).

My main research interests are Search-based Software Engineering (SBSE), Software refactoring, Model-Driven Engineering, Software maintenance and evolution, Software migration and Software testing. I am the founder of the SBSE-Michigan research group . My research page has more information about my ongoing research projects. I am always looking for students to work with, if you are interested feel free to contact me.
