Research Themes
Research Summary

My main research area is Search-Based Software Engineering, with specific interest in the definition and the empirical evaluation of Search-Based approaches for predictive modelling in the context of Software Development Effort Estimation and Fault Prediction. She is actually working on the parallel applications of these techniques exploiting emergent computational paradigms, such as Cloud Computing. My research interests also include functional metrics for sizing software products, search-based approaches for project management, and Human-Computer Interaction.
