Name: Jácome Cunha

Bio: Currently, I’m an Assistant Professor at University of Minho, Department of Informatics, and an integrated member of the research center HASLab/INESC Tec.

My research is mainly focused on aiding end users being more effective and efficient when developing their software systems. In particular, I’ve made several contributions to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of spreadsheet users/developers. More recently I’ve also worked on improving software energy consumption through the analysis and transformation of its source code. Currently I’m focused on making data science more accessible for (end) users.

I obtained my PhD degree in Computer Science from University of Minho in 2011. Afterward, I was a post-doctoral fellow jointly at University of Minho and Oregon State University, and was also an Invited Professor at one of the schools of Polytechnic Institute of Porto. Between 2014 and 2018 I was an Assistant at NOVA University of Lisbon.
