I enjoy teaching and base it on simple strategies: Motivate students; Teach clearly, concisely and critically; and Connect with real life.


Research Interests

My main research interests fall under a wide range of Software Engineering related topics. Particularly, I work on software process improvement in small organizations through the bottom-up approach, privacy issues in software design and serious games applied to software development and teaching.
I am also interested in IT Project Management, Standardization and Databases.
