Dr Salome H. Maro in summary

About Me

I am a Lecturer at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering in CoICT. My main areas of research interest are software traceability, software development processes and program comprehension. I hold a PhD from the University of Gothenburg, Sweden (2020), has an MSc in Software Engineering from the University of Gothenburg, Sweden (2014) and a BSc in Computer Science from the University of Dar es salaam (2010).

Apart from software engineering, I also have a passion for education research and have participated in various projects around the E-Learning domain.
