Kleinner Farias is an Assistant Professor in the Interdisciplinary Postgraduate Program in Applied Computing (PIPCA) at the University of Vale do Rio dos Sinos (Unisinos). Farias received his Ph.D. in Software Engineering in 2012 from the Department of Informatics at the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro (PUC-Rio), under the supervision of Dr. Alessandro Garcia and Dr. Carlos Lucena. He also received an M.S. in Computer Science in 2008 from the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio Grande do Sul (PUC-RS), under the supervision of Dr. Toacy Oliveira. Moreover, Farias earned a B.Sc. in Computer Science in 2006 from the Computer Science Department at the Federal University of Alagoas, and a B.Sc. in Information Technology in 2006 from the Department of informatics at the Federal Institute of Alagoas. As a researcher, his work focuses on software modeling, domain-specific modeling language, empirical software engineering, aspect-oriented software development, software architecture, neuroscience applied to software engineering, and model-driven software development. Today, Farias investigates how software developers invest effort to compose design models created in parallel by different development teams. The knowledge produced in the last five years has been used to: (1) develop new tools and stimulate new researches; (2) establish new facts, and restate the results of previous works; or even (3) encourage other researchers for replicating empirical studies in different contexts. He has published his research results in premier software engineering conferences, including ICSE, MODELS, AOSD, and journals, including JUCS and SoSym. Farias is a member of the OPUS Research Group and MobiLab.
