Leonel Merino

You have reached the homepage of Leonel Merino. I am a PhD student at the Software Composition Group in the University of Bern since March 2014. In the past, I obtained a Bachelor degree in Computer Science from the University of Chile (2006), and a Master degree from Ecole des Mines de Nantes and Vrije Universiteit Brussel (2008). I also spent some years working in industry at the main telecommunications company in Chile. For further information checkout my CV.

My main research interests are in the areas of software visualization, program comprehension, empirical evaluation, virtual/augmented reality, collaboration networks, ontology design.
