Pearl Brereton

I graduated with a degree in mathematics and computer science from Sheffield University in 1970 and was awarded a PhD in numerical analysis from Keele University in 1977. After a range of jobs in industry and academia I returned to Keele and in 2003 was appointed to a personal chair in software engineering. My research has spanned a range of topics including service-oriented and component based systems and empirical software engineering. Over recent years I have focused on evidence-based software engineering including the adoption and adaptation of the systematic review methodology within the software engineering domain. I am joint author of a recent book on Evidence-Based Software Engineering and Systematic Reviews.
