Aitor Arrieta

Aitor Arrieta is a lecturer and researcher at Mondragon University. He got his PhD in software engineering at Mondragon University in 2017. His research interests lie in the field of software testing (e.g., search-based software testing, test oracle problem, regression testing, debugging and repair), especially on testing untestable systems, such as Cyber-Physical Systems, highly configurable systems and Machine-Learning based systems. He currently leads the ADEPTNESS H2020 project, which aims at researching on DevOps methods to be applicable and scalable in Cyber-Physical Systems.

About Me

I am a permanent lecturer and researcher (a.k.a. Associate Professor) at the University of Mondragon. My research interests include software engineering and software testing areas, mostly related to the application of these to Cyber-Physical Systems. In the last few years, my research has centered on the test oracle problem for this context and test optimization techniques.

My research is industry-oriented. I collaborate with different industrial companies to better understand which their real problems are. I am currently involved in the coordination of the Adeptness (H2020) project, although I actively participate in the technical part. Specifically, I am working on automated approaches for the multi-level testing of Cyber-Physical Systems.
