My research area is software processes in an industrial context, with a particular focus set on the verification and validation processes and the use of open source software and open data. The research is based on empirical methods; experiments, case studies and surveys. I am also interested in cross disciplinary aspects of the digital society.
I have published more than 200 papers and chapters in international journals, conferences and books, and is the coauthor of books on experimentation and case studies in software engineering. I'm the 5th most cited scholar in Empirical Software Engineering, globally.
The academic year 2011-2012, I spent my sabbatical at North Carolina State University, USA.
