I’m the head of the Software Engineering Unit at the ITIS department of the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST). Previosly, I’ve been an ICREA Research Professor at Internet Interdisciplinary Institute, the research center of the Open University of Catalonia (UOC) where I led the SOM Research Lab. I was also Visiting Professor at the Western Norway University of Applied Sciences, associate professor at École des Mines de Nantes as part of an Inria International Chair and postdoc at the University of Toronto.
My research falls into the broad area of systems and software engineering, especially promoting the rigorous use of software models and engineering principles in all software engineering tasks while keeping an eye on the most unpredictable element in any project: the people involved in it. Current research topics include pragmatic formal verification techniques, analysis of open source communities, open data exploitation and the role AI can play in software development (and vice versa). Let’s use all the tools at our disposal to build Better Software Faster.
