I am an Assistant Professor in the School of Informatics, Computing, and Cyber Systems at Northern Arizona University. I completed a Ph.D. in Computer Science at the Institute of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of São Paulo in 2015.  Previously, I was a visiting scholar at the University of California, Irvine from July 2013 to January 2014. I am also a member of the Software Engineering and Collaborative Systems Research Group from the University of São Paulo, and the Research Group on Information Systems from the State University of Maringá (UEM).

I research the intersections of Software Engineering (SE) and Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW). Currently, I am working on the support of newcomers to Open Source Software development communities and gender bias in Open Source Software, in addition to understanding the impacts of Foundational Models in Education and in Software Development (from a human perspective). I am interested in Open Source Software, Human Aspects of Software Engineering, Empirical Software Engineering, and Mining Software Repository techniques. 

I am currently general co-chair of ICSME 2024 (come visit Flagstaff), general co-chair of ICPC 2024 (see you in Lisbon), and PC co-chair for SBES 2024 (Curitiba, here we go). Previously, I chaired CHASE 2023, was the PC co-chair of ICSSP/ICGSE 2022, OSS 2022, and SBES-IIER 2022, co-chair of ICSE SCORE 2021, co-chair of MSR FOSS award 2019 and 2020, Associate Chair for ACM CSCW 2021, among others. I was part of several PCs, including ICSE, ICSE-NIER, MSR, CSCW, ICGSE, OSS, and EASE.

I review for several journals and I am part of the Editorial Board of:
