Fernanda Madeiral


I'm a Brazilian Ph.D. student in Computer Science at Federal University of Uberlândia (since 2014), advised by Marcelo Maia, and I'm also a member of LASCAM. I obtained my master's degree from the São Paulo State University (2013) and my bachelor's degree from the University of Western São Paulo (2010), both in Computer Science. Recently, I spent six months in a "sandwich doctorate" internship at Inria Lille (France), Spirals team. My research interests are on Software Engineering, especially on software maintenance and evolution, and mining software repositories.

PS: my complete name is Fernanda Madeiral Delfim. Currently, I use only my first last name, "Madeiral", although you can eventually find some of my works with the last last name, "Delfim" :)
