Dr Muneera Bano has over a decade of experience in academic teaching, research, supervision, and leadership with demonstrated ability to work both independently and as an integral part of a team. Previously, Muneera worked as a Post-doctoral researcher and ‘Learning and Teaching Adjunct’ at University of Technology Sydney. She graduated from the University of Technology Sydney in 2015 with a PhD in Software Engineering.
Her research interests include requirements engineering, service orientation, sentiment analysis and evidence based software engineering. Muneera works at the intersection between computers and humans – looking for ways to engineer technology to work better with the people that use it. Muneera specialises in the field of socio-technical domains of software engineering focusing on human-centred technologies. Her recent research areas include: technology assisted pedagogies for education, and social media analysis.
She contributes to the broader research community as Associate Editor of the Institution of Engineering and Technology Software Journal, as Track Chair in International Requirements Engineering, and Australian Software Engineering Conferences; and as a member of the program committee for various highly-ranked conferences including Grace Hopper Conference for Women in Computer Science.
During her research career, Muneera has also received prestigious recognition for her work, including being named as a finalist for Google Australia’s Anita Borg Award for Women in Computer Science, Asia-Pacific 2015. She was also the recipient of Schlumberger’s Award for Women in STEM (2014 and 2015) and was given the ‘distinguished research paper award’ at International Requirements Engineering Conference held in August 2018. She has been announced as Superstar of STEM for 2019-2020 by Science Technology Australia. Superstars of STEM program aims to smash society’s gender assumptions about scientists and increase the public visibility of women in STEM.
