BIOGRAPHY


Hema Subramaniam, a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Software Engineering, Faculty of Computer Science and Information Technology at Universiti Malaya. She earned her PhD in Software Engineering from Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) in 2016, and prior to that, she obtained a Master of Computer Science (Software Engineering) from Universiti Selangor in 2010, as well as a BSc in Information Technology from the same institution in 2006. Her research has primarily focused on software quality measurement and reusability, and she has actively engaged in investigating mental well-being analytics through social media insights and multi-model analysis, software solutions for learning disabilities (LD) supported by a grant. Throughout her career, Hema has contributed significantly to the field of software engineering, with numerous papers published in conferences and journals. Currently, she is overseeing a group of Master's students who are dedicated to exploring software maintainability, software management, and mood detection applications under her guidance.
