Omar is a research fellow and lecturer at Monash University. Omar is researching new approaches to developing and designing mobile apps that take into account the ”human” aspects of end-users and team members. He is developing techniques so that mHealth and emerging apps are designed and developed to better meet user needs.
His PhD thesis focused on large-scale app review and related artefact analysis, including developing tools to analyse app reviews, privacy policies, developer responses to reviews, and tools to advise developers on app development to address key usability, accessibility and privacy-related issues.
Research areas of interest:
- Better development, design and testing of eHealth and emerging apps.
- Accessibility of mobile apps for everyone regardless of their age, gender, ethnicity, etc.
- Better analysis and addressing diverse issues and problems in user reviews.
- Human-centred software engineering, human-centred understanding of issues and designing mobile apps with Adaptive User Interfaces.
- Domain-specific Visual Languages and Model-driven engineering.
- Working with sensors and depth cameras to improve human ergonomics.
