Name:Willian Oizumi

I completed a MSc degree in Computer Science at the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro (PUC-Rio) in September 2015. I have more than six years of professional experience with software development. Currently, I am a Teaching Faculty at the Federal Institute of Parana (IFPR) and a Ph.D. Candidate at the PUC-Rio – expecting to graduate by June 2021. My research is on the Software Engineering field, with a focus on the following topics: Software Architecture and Design, Code Smells, Refactoring, Empirical Software Engineering and Search-based Software Engineering. In my Ph.D. research, I am working on a technique to assist developers in the identification and removal of design problems, which occur when quality attributes are negatively impacted. During my MSc and Ph.D. I had the opportunity to publish papers in prestigious conferences and journals, such as ICSE (2016, 2018), MSR (2020), IST (2020), ICSME (2020), SPLC (2014), ESEM (2019), ISSRE (2019), and ICPC (2019, 2020). In 2016, my MSc research was awarded as the third best computer science dissertation of the Brazilian Contest of Theses and Dissertations.
