I am a professor in the Federal Institute of Alagoas, interested in configurable systems with a high amount of variablity. Currently, I'm investigating approaches to safely evolve configurable systems that are statically configurable with the C preprocessor. Our approach considers perfective evolution, which focuses on improving software quality by performing refactorings, and defective evolution, which focuses on detecting existing configuration-related bugs, including memory leaks, resource leaks, syntax errors, and type errors. Configuration-related bugs appear only when we enable or disable certain compile-time configuration options.
PhD at Federal University of Campina Grande (UFCG), concluded in March 2016, advised by Dr. Rohit Gheyi and Dr. Márcio Ribeiro. Internship at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), advised by Dr. Christian Kästner, and another at Univertät Passau, advised by Dr. Sven Apel.
Productivity Research Grant (PQ-A) at IFAL. Founding member and coordinator of the Software Research Center (CPS). Conducts research in the areas of configurable systems and analysis of software repositories. He has publications in very selective software engineering venues, such as ICSE and TSE.
