Jens Krinke is Senior Lecturer in the Software Systems Engineering Group at the University College London, and Director of the CREST centre.

He is well known for his work on program slicing; current research topics include program analysis for software engineering purposes, in particular dependence analysis for software security, and clone detection and its use in code provenance.

Before joining the University College London, he was at King's College London and the FernUniversitaet in Hagen, Germany, where he worked on aspect mining and e-learning applications for distant teaching of software engineering.

Jens Krinke received his Ph.D. in computer science from the University of Passau, Germany.

Research Summary

Jens Krinke's main research theme is software analysis for better comprehension and maintenance of software systems. The first line of research is dependence analysis, which tries to answer the question "which parts of a system can influence which other parts?" where the system is represented in different forms, ranging from source code to models (e.g. UML). The second line of research is source code reuse, where one investigates where and how source code is copied, duplicate, or otherwise reused – which include code cloning and source code plagiarism. The third line of research is about code review, which has become a widely accepted approach to continuously ensure the quality of software undergoing changes. Here, the research is about  supporting reviewers in their reviewing task and studying day-to-day software development, for example, by studying the motivation and discussions on proposed changes.
