I'm an associate professor in the Department of Computer Sciences and Mathematics (DIM) at Université du Québec à Chicoutimi (Canada) since 2018. I obtained my Ph.D. degree in Computer Science in 2016 from Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (Brazil) and I were a postdoctoral fellow at Concordia University (Canada).
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.
I published several papers in international conferences and journals, including TSE, EMSE, JSS, IST, IEEE Software, QRS, ICPC, SAC, ICSOC, and VISSOFT. He has served on the program committees of several international conferences including QRS, CHI, SIGCSE, ICPC, VISSOFT, GAS and has reviewed for top international journals such as TSE, TOSEM, JSS, EMSE and IST.
I has also worked as a programmer, software architect, manager, and agile coach for more than 20 years, working on critical mission projects and guiding several teams.
