Hi, I’m Gustavo Pinto.

I’m an Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Computing of the Federal University of Pará, Brazil, and the Head of Research at Zup Innovation. I am also the (co-)Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Software Engineering Research and Development (JSERD).

I (eventually) blog, do talks, and videos. I am also active on twitter. I’ve published two short e-books.

I have very broad interests in Software Engineering, including refactoring (e.g., JSS’2019), human aspects of software development (e.g., ICSE’2018), and open source software (e.g., ICSE-SEET’2019).

You can see my list of publications here, along with all preprints. I also maintain my cv of failure.

Are you a student looking for an advisor? Are you a researcher and think that our interests overlap? I’m always looking for collaborations; you can reach me at gpintoignorethis@ufpa.br.


I’m an assistant professor at UFPA, Brazil and the head of research at Zup Innovation, Brazil. In 2015, I received my Ph.D. from Federal University of Pernambuco, Brazil. I have very broad interests in Software Engineering, including Open Source Software (communities and contributors), Human Aspects of Software Engineering, Empirical Software Engineering, and Mining Software Repositories techniques.
