About Me

I hold a Ph.D (2020) degree in Computer Science from the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS), where I am part of the Prosoft Group. Currently, I am a visiting researcher at the Chair of Software Engineering of the RWTH Aachen University. I have experience in Software Engineering, with a focus on Self-Adaptive Systems. My current research interest is on investigating logging practices on software development.
