Research interests

I am currently a postdoc researcher at the Software Engineering Research Group (SERG) that is led by Prof. Dr. Arie van Deursen, at Delft University of Technology. I play several roles in the group, such as conduct my own research, support PhDs and MSc students in their research, and help to teach the software engineering courses that we provide at the university.

My primary research interest is empirical software engineering, and more specifically in software testing, software architecture, and software maintenance. I definitely acknowledge the myriad of amazing contributions practitioners have provided to the Software Engineering world. However, in many occasions, they lack tools and knowledge to actually understand the effects of their own creations in the broader picture. We researchers have the skills to step in and help them improve their current practices. Thus, my preferred focus is to understand the challenges faced by developers in a certain activity by means of rigorous Empirical Software Engineering research; with a clear problem in hands, I build approaches, techniques, recommenders, tools, or even educational material that will help them to improve their jobs.
