I’m an Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Computing of the Federal University of Pará, Brazil. I do research in the broad area of software engineering. I teach programming at the BSc level. I (eventually) blog and do talks.
I received my Ph.D. from Federal University of Pernambuco, Brazil, under Dr. Fernando Castor supervision. During the academic year of 2013-2014, I was a visiting scholar at the State University of New York, working with Dr. Yu David Liu. My Ph.D. thesis is all about software energy consumption.
From December 2015 to March 2017 I have been an Assistant Professor at the Federal Institute of Education, Science, and Technology of Pará, Brazil. Before becoming a professor, I did a Post Doc also with Dr. Fernando Castor.
My primary research area is software engineering. My broader interests include energy consumption (e.g., CACM’2017), concurrent programming (e.g., OOPSLA’2014), human aspects of software development (e.g., SANER’2016), and mining software repositories techniques (e.g., MSR’2015).
Are you a student looking for an advisor? (If you’re unsure of what my research area is, check out one of my recent papers.) Are you a researcher and think that our interests overlap? I’m always looking for collaboration; you can reach me at gpinto @ufpa.br
