Hi, my name is Fabio Petrillo.

I’m an associate professor in the Department of Software Engineering and IT at École de Technologie Supérieure - ÉTS (Canada) since 2022. My main goal is to create theories and techniques to improve software engineers’ life.

In my research career, I have worked on Empirical Software Engineering, Software Quality, Debugging, Service-Oriented Architecture, Cloud Computing, and Agile Methods. I have been recognized as a pioneer and an international reference on Software Engineering for Computer Games. I’m the creator of Swarm Debugging, a new collaborative approach to support debugging activities.
