Biography

Everton Guimaraes, assistant professor of software engineering, holds a B.S. in information technology from the Federal Institute of Technology, Science and Education (IFRN), an M.S. in computing and systems from the Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte, and a Ph.D. in sciences and informatics from the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro. Before joining Penn State Great Valley, Dr. Guimaraes worked as Assistant Professor at the University of Fortaleza, where he also joined the Software Engineering Research Group. He was also a Postdoctoral Fellow at Drexel University.

Dr. Guimaraes' teaching involves algorithms and computer programming, software development and analysis, software architecture, software engineering, and mobile computing. He has collaborated with many partners in industry and academia, both in Brazil and abroad, over the past 9 years. His main research interests are in software engineering and mobile computing. His most recent research investigates of problems related to software architecture and source code, and their impact on the overall software quality attributes (i.e. maintenance, evolution, comprehension). Moreover, he is also interested in research topics related to technical debt, architecture recovery techniques, model composition, software product lines, multi-agent systems and IoT.
