Luca Pascarella pictureI am an Italian Software Engineer with a background in both Software Development and Hardware Design. Currently, I am pursuing a Ph.D. in Computer Science at the Delft University of Technology (TU Delft), The Netherlands.

My research explores the empirical software engineering field. It coincides with goals of “Software Engineering in Enterprise Cloud Applications Homepage” (SENECA) project that promotes my job.

Deeply, my research consists of a dynamically and continuous investigation aimed at understanding how structured and unstructured data can be manipulated to improve the development process of software projects. Currently, I am working on corner aspects that involve the Modern Code Reviews (MCR) tackling the problem from different perspectives. E.g. one of my published paper investigates how developers use and produce code comments.
My broad goal is to understand how unexplored aspects of MCR may impact on development processes with the purpose of addressing issues and propose considerable solutions for industrial companies.
My research is supported by collaborating with several universities and industries all over the world, recently, I am actively working with a prominent Dutch company, the Software Improvement Group (SIG).
