Current Research

My main research interest are Empirical Software Engineering, Software Quality and Software Maintenance and Evolution

Software Quality, Maintenance and Evolution

Mining software repository for evaluating the presence and harmfulness of code smells and architectural smells

Technical Debt

What software characteristics are actually impacting the technical debt, including different aspects of the software such as code violations, code smells, architectural smells but also process-related aspects such as process decisions.
