Unit tests form the first defensive line against the introduction of bugs in software systems. Therefore, their quality is of a paramount importance to produce robust and reliable software. To assess test quality, many organizations relies on metrics like code and mutation coverage. However, they are not always optimal to fulfill such a purpose. In my research, I want to make mutation testing scalable by devising a lightweight approach to estimate test effectiveness. Moreover, I plan to introduce a new metric measuring test focus—as a proxy for the effort needed by developers to understand and maintain a test— that both complements code coverage to assess test quality and can be used to drive automated test case generation of higher quality tests.

I am a PhD student at University of Zürich, into the s.e.a.l. lead by Prof. Harald Gall. My main research interests include Search-Based Software Engineering (SBSE), with a main focus on Seach-Based Software Testing (SBST), Software maintenance and evolution and Empirical Software Engineeering.
