ABOUT ME

PhD student at the Centre for Research on Evolution, Search and Testing (CREST), the Systems Software Engineering Group (SSE), University College London, London, United Kingdom.

My research interests are regarded to search based software engineering, particularly when applied to software architecture and design. My current PhD research involves the understanding of architectural decisions by practitioners and the application of search based techniques, mostly co-evolutionary algorithms, to aid developers in such decisions.

Supervisory Team:

Prof. Mark Harman
Dr. Jens Krinke
Dr. Emmanuel Letier
Dr. Yuanyuan Zhang

My PhD is being funded by the Conselho Nacional de Desenvolvimento Científico e Tecnológico, of the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation of Brazil (CNPq)
