Ph.D. in Computer Science and Associate Professor at the Instituto Federal de Alagoas (IFAL), Brazil.

I research the intersections of Software Engineering and Empirical studies. My Ph.D. degree was at the Universidade Federal de Pernambuco (UFPE) in Brazil, under supervise of Dr. Sérgio Soares and Dr. Gustavo Pinto. My research investigation was about Grey Literature in Software Engineering.

I am also interested in research about:

  • Use the Empirical methods to improve Software Engineering
  • Social Aspects of Software Engineering
  • Software Quality and Agile methods
