Bio

Nemitari is a lecturer in the Department of Computer Science. Prior to joining the department, he worked in the software industry as a blockchain/distributed ledger developer and developer on a funded research project at Brunel University London where he completed his PhD. The PhD thesis has the title ‘An empirical study on object-oriented software dependencies: logical, structural and semantic’. He teaches on the OOP module and supports a range of modules across the Department of Computer Science.

Nemitari is a member of the data analytics research group and his research interests include data-driven object-oriented software engineering including software maintenance, quality, change impact analysis and refactoring. In the past, his focus has been on the interplay between object-oriented software dependencies (structural, logical and semantic dependencies) for reduced maintenance and impact analysis efforts. Nemitari is a member of the British computing society, a certified SAP associate and certified SAS base 9 programmer.
