My research interests are in Software Engineering and Programming Languages, with a focus on improving software reliability. Software bugs are inevitable as software is mostly written by humans. My research focuses at improving software quality assurance tasks, including bug prevention, bug finding, bug diagnosis, and code repair. All these can result in less cost to Software Engineering.
Previously: I obtained my PhD from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) in 2007 and my BS and MS degrees from the Federal University of Pernambuco, Brazil (1996 and 2001, respectively). I spent a sabbatical year at Georgia Tech from June 2015 to July 2016.
