My research focus is on the detection of vulnerabilities on code during modern code review. I am interested in investigating why developers still miss this kind issues during the review and improve the process so that they can detect it more efficiently. My research interests also include static analysis, change impact analysis, and configurable systems.

Short Bio

I am a Brazilian Ph.D. student in Software Engineering at the University of Zürich, within the Zürich Empirical Software Engineering Team (ZEST).

I received my Master’s and Bachelor’s degree at the Federal University of Campina Grande, Brazil, in 2016 and 2013 respectively. My master’s thesis research focused on proposing a change-centric approach to compile configurable systems with #ifdefs.
