Name: Matheus Paixao

Bio: I am currently an Assistant Professor at the University of Fortaleza (Unifor), located in the city of Fortaleza, Brazil. At Unifor, I am part of the Department of Development, Research and Inovation, where I work on R&D projects in the fields of software engineering, artificial intelligence and machine learning. I received my PhD degree from the University College London, where I was supervised by Prof. Mark Harman and Dr. Jens Krinke. My research interests tend to revolve around software and repositories analysis. I find software engineering data fascinating due to its complexity, lack of structure and mix of technical and social aspects. My recent publications involve microservices, software architecture, software refactoring, modern code review, and mining software repositores. Search based software engineering has been my introduction to academia and it is a topic I cannot keep myself away from.
