My research activity is in the area of Software Maintenance and Evolution, and in particular is mainly focused (but not limited to) to the following topics: (i) technical debt management, (ii) source code quality, (iii) predictive analytics for fault-, change-, and effort-prediction, and (iv) social aspects on software engineering. In my studies, I try to mix mining software engineering methodologies with qualitative investigations with developers. 


On these topics, I published more than 30 papers in international journals and conferences. I have been the recipient of two ACM/SIGSOFT Distinguished Paper Awards and one IEEE/TCSE Distinguished Paper Award. More information about me on my personal website.

 

 

Short Bio

Prior to joining UZH, I have worked one year as research associate at Delft University of Technology (TU Delft), The Netherlands. I received the European Ph.D. in 2017 under the supervision of Prof. Andrea De Lucia, working in the Software Engineering @Salerno (SESA) research group of the University of Salerno.

I obtained my bachelor and master degrees in computer science from the University of Molise and University of Salerno, respectively.
