Short Bio

Research Interests

In particular I'm currently focusing on combining two of my main interests: SOA and Software Analysis (which, at a first glance might seem decoupled). More specifically my goal is to devise a distributed software analysis platform to allow the interoperability of software analysis tools across organisational boundaries using web services, as a part of the DiCOSA and SoSYA projects. At the same time I'm studying ways to support conceptual querying of the information that those tools would offer.

The reason why I decided to address this issue is that throughout the years researchers have proposed and developed a broad variety of analysis tools and techniques specialized on a particular aspect, without taking into account interoperability. Thus the sharing of information between tools is hardly doable as it is limited by many factors as different data formats and models, platform and language dependence, etc.We think that this lack of interoperability severely hampers software evolution research as, due to these problems, people often keep reinventing the same wheels instead of using existing solutions, with little advancement of the field as a whole.
