Hi! I am an Adjunct Professor at Queen’s University in Canada. I currently lead the blockchain research team at the Software Analysis and Intelligence Lab (SAIL). My goal is to enable the development of cost-effective decentralized applications (DApps) on top of popular programmable blockchain platforms (e.g., Ethereum). In addition to blockchain, I also conduct empirical studies in the fields of software ecosystems (e.g., dependency management in npm), code analytics (e.g., new lenses for Java code analysis), and explanaible AI (e.g., consistent interpretation of models). Prior to becoming an adjunct at Queen’s, I worked as a research fellow at the same university under the supervision of prof. Dr. Ahmed Hassan. I received my PhD from the University of São Paulo (USP) in Brazil under the supervision of prof. Dr. Marco Gerosa.
