I have multiple research interests, but my primary line of inquiry is Software Engineering. I specialize in software process analysis, where I apply some decision support techniques to improve the collaboration in development teams.
Recently, I have become interested in the way emotions change software development. Specifically, I am interested in emotional contagion, which happens when one person’s emotions transfer to another person, and the impact emotional contagion has on software development.
