I have a PhD in Computer Science from the Laboratory for Foundations of Computer Science (LFCS), University of Edinburgh, Scotland, since 1992. In 1993, I joined the Centre for Informatics at the Federal University of Pernambuco, where I am currently Professor in Software engineering.
I was one of the co-founders of the Center of Advanced Studies and Systems at Recife (C.E.S.A.R.) in 1996, and of Porto Digital Science Park, in Recife, Brazil, in 2001, of which I was President between 2001 and 2003.
I have been involved in teaching entrepreneurship, enterprise creation, innovation management, as well as project management and software engineering in the past 19 years. I have supervised over 60 master and 10 doctoral students, and my scientific production comprises over 200 articles in journals and conference proceedings.
I am currently supervising 4 master and 6 doctoral students in various themes related to human aspects and team work in software engineering. You can find (no so much updated) information about my research team at HASE Research.
