Short Bio

Hello! My name is Catarina and I'm a Computer Science Ph.D. student at NOVA LINCS, Universidade NOVA de Lisboa (Portugal), advised by Miguel Goulão and João Araújo. I was a Visiting Research Student from January to June 2017 at SEGAL Research Group, University of Victoria (Canada), working with Daniela Damian.

I received my MSc degree in Computer Science from Universidade NOVA de Lisboa in 2014. The thesis, titled Avaliação da Qualidade em Modelos de Requisitos i* (Quality Evaluation of i* Requirements Models), is available online (in Portuguese only).

My main research interests are in the area of software engineering, especially software requirements, software design, experimental software engineering and software quality.

This page is currently (September 2017) being updated, so please be patient.
