Efi Papatheocharous is a senior researcher at the Swedish Institute of Computer Science (SICS). Prior to this, she was an ERCIM Post-doctoral Research Fellow at SICS and a Lecturer at the Department of Computer Science, University of Cyprus. She is currently carrying out core processes at the Software and Systems Engineering (SSE) Laboratory at SICS, and her research focus is empirical studies for systems and software engineering. Her primary research interests are Software Cost Estimation, Computational Intelligence, Agile Software Engineering, Systems-of-Systems, Software Ecosystems and Human Factors in Software Engineering. She obtained her Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Cyprus, in 2012, her M.Sc. at the University of Manchester in Advanced Computer Science with ICT Management, in 2005, and her B.Sc. in Computer Science from the Department of Computer Science, University of Cyprus, in 2004. Since 2006, she has been collaborating in a number of research projects at a National and European level and contributing to the research community with many papers published in peer reviewed books, international conference proceedings journals (external link to publications is here).
