I am an assistant professor at the Jheronimus Academy Data and Engineering Lab of the Jheronimus Academy of Data Science, a collaboration between Tilburg University and Eindhoven Technical University. From 2018 to 2019 I have been a postdoctoral fellow at the Software Languages Lab of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel. In 2018 I received a PhD from the University of Salerno advised by Prof. Andrea De Lucia with a thesis entitled Methods and Tools for Focusing and Prioritizing the Testing Effort.
My research is on empirical software engineering, in particular, software maintenance and evolution and software testing. To this aim, I apply several techniques such as machine learning, search-based algorithms, and mining of software repositories. I serve and had served as a program committee member of various international conferences (e.g., ESEC/FSE, ICSME, SANER, ICPC), and as a referee for various international journals in the field of software engineering (e.g., TSE, TOSEM, EMSE, JSS) and artificial intelligence (e.g., TKDE, Neurocomputing).
