Dr. Hélène Waeselynck is a Research Scientist (Directrice de Recherche) at LAAS-CNRS, Toulouse, France. Her research interests concern software validation, with an emphasis on dependable computing systems. She has recently served as the General Chair of the IEEE International Symposium on Software Reliability Engineering (ISSRE 2017) and is a member of the Editorial Boards of IEEE Transactions on Reliability (TRel), Empirical Software Engineering (EMSE) and of the International Journal of Critical Computer-Based Systems (IJCCBS). She strongly supports experimentation as a scientific approach to research. In particular, testing research needs empirical studies to better understand the faults introduced during development processes, and to assess and improve the efficiency of the test methods that track them. Her own experimental work has benefited from tight collaborations with industry, giving her access to real safety-critical software from aeronautical and space systems, railway systems and nuclear systems. Her recent research addresses testing and safety monitoring of autonomous robots operating in the vicinity of humans.
