I got my PhD from the University of Lugano, with Michele Lanza as advisor and my engineer degree from the Polytechnic University of Timişoara, with a thesis supervised by Radu Marinescu and Tudor Girba. I was as a visiting researcher at IBM TJ Watson Research Center in NY with Wim De Pauw.
My research interests are in software engineering, software evolution, ecosystem analysis, programming languages, and mobile applications.
|Agile Software Assessment - SNF project investigating software evolution|
|SATToSE - We recently organized it at the University of Bern.|
|Softwarenaut - Tool for monitoring software architecture evolution.|
|Pangea - Making multi-language empirical studies in software engineering easy|
|Big Software Data - Empirical Studies of large scale software analysis|
|(new) A qualitative study of developer needs in ecosystem context|
|(new) The St1-PL/1 tool for PL1 Ecosystem analysis tested at Credit Suisse|
|WEA - the First International Workshop on Ecosystem Architectures in Saint Petersburg (co-located with ESEC/FSE)|
|Polite - Investigating PL syntaxes closer to natural language|
|Zee Guu - Ubiquitous second language acquisition|
|Quicksilver - Infrastructure for the interactive exploration of hierarchical data sets|
A good part of the software analysis work goes into Moose to which I and my students have been contributing since several years.
(new) In the fall of 2013 I am teaching the following courses and seminar at the University of Bern.
Three of the Swiss and international events that I organize are:
