I am a postdoc researcher at USI, Switzerland. Since I first implemented optimization algorithms for GCC (as a Master student), I've always loved working with static analysis. This led to a Ph.D. at the Univ. of Szeged in Hungary, where I studied reverse engineering techniques on data-intensive systems.At the University of Namur in Belgium, we studied techniques to extract and analyze SQL embedded in Java, which we presented at international SE conferences and implemented as an Eclipse plugin. Besides academia, I took part and led many industrial projects which also motivated my research.
