I am a postdoc researcher at the Software Institute - USI, Lugano. I received my PhD from the University of Szeged in Hungary, where I studied reverse engineering techniques on data-intensive systems. At the University of Namur in Belgium, we researched techniques to extract and analyse SQL embedded in Java. We presented our approach at international conferences and implemented it as an Eclipse plugin. Besides academia, I conducted industrial projects which also motivate my research.

Principal Software Engineer at Red Hat, Inc., Germany
I've been working as a software engineer on machine-to-machine related tasks since 1999. Over the years, I’ve progressed with the industry towards what is now called the IoT. I’ve always been a fan of open source and helped to conceive the Eclipse IoT top-level project. Although I'm a contributor to numerous open source projects, it’s Eclipse IoT and Eclipse Hono where I feel most at home.
