I am full professor at the faculty of informatics of the Universita della Svizzera italiana (USI), where I founded the REVEAL research group in 2004.
Since July 2017 I direct the newly founded Software Institute.
I co-authored over 150 journal and conference publications and the book Object-Oriented Metrics in Practice.

My activitites span various international software engineering research communities. I have served on the program committees of ICSE, FSE, ICSME, ICPC, MSR and many other conferences, and as program co-chair of SANER 2016, ICSM 2010, VISSOFT 2009, MSR 2008, IWPSE 2007, and MSR 2007.
I was keynote speaker at MSR 2010, CBSOFT/SBES 2011, BENEVOL 2011, CSMR 2013, and SCAM 2016.
I am board member of CHOOSE (Swiss Group for Object-Oriented Systems and Environments), and vice-president of the Moose association. I am steering committee member of the ERCIM working group on software evolution.

I was born in Italy, and later moved to Switzerland. I studied at the University of Bern, completing my MSc in 1999 and earning my PhD in 2003. Before coming to Lugano I was also postdoctoral researcher at the University of Zurich.

I am always looking for potential PhD students to join the REVEAL research group
