Research interests

I am interested in different areas of software engineering. My main research focus is on software maintenance and evolution, but other topics in the field are also welcome. I am actively doing research related to:

  • Program comprehension.
  • Software documentation.
  • Mining software repositories.
  • Empirical software engineering.
  • Concept location.
