I completed a PhD in Computer Science at the Institute of Mathematics and Statistics at University of São Paulo in March 2016. I am a Full Professor at the Federal University of Technology - Paraná (UTFPR), Brazil. I was Visiting Scholar at the University of California, Irvine, from July 2013 to January 2014 and a post-doctoral Scholar at Northern Arizona University (NAU) from July 2019 to February 2021. My research is on the intersection of Software Engineering (SE), HCI and Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW). Currently, my focus is on supporting newcomers to Open Source Software development. My interests revolve around Human Aspects of Software Engineering and Mining Software Repositories. 

Most of my research uses AI and Data Science techniques to leverage software engineering tasks. Currently, I have two projects under my supervision. CNPQ Universal (Mining worked examples to support Software Engineering teaching) and an MCTI-CGI-FAPESP (Turning Padawans into Jedis: Using worked examples to improve the newcomer’s skills in open software projects).
