My research area is software processes in an industrial context, with a particular focus set on the verification and validation processes. The research is based on empirical methods; experiments, case studies and surveys.
I have published more than 100 papers in international journals and conferences and is the coauthor of books on experimentation and case studies in software engineering. I am ranked 4th worldwide among systems and software engineering scholars by R. Glass (publications 2003-2007).
