I am currently working as a postdoctoral research fellow in the Software Analysis and Intelligence Lab (SAIL) at Queen's University in Kingston, Canada under the supervision of prof. Ahmed E. Hassan. My research interests cover a wide variety of software engineering and performance engineering related topics, including performance regression analysis, performance testing and repository mining. I was born in The Hague (Den Haag) in the Netherlands, where I have lived for 30 years. I studied at Delft University of Technology, where I received my BSc (2007), MSc (2009) and PhD (2014) degree in Computer Science. The title of my PhD thesis was "Performance Optimization of Multi-Tenant Software Systems" (supervised by dr. Andy Zaidman and prof. dr. Arie van Deursen).
- I was elected as one of the vice chairs of the SPEC Research Group on DevOps performance.
- Our paper Revisiting the Performance of Automated Approaches for the Retrieval of Duplicate Reports in Issue Tracking Systems that Perform Just-in-Time Duplicate Retrieval was accepted for publication in the Empirical Software Engineering (EMSE) journal!
- I will serve on the program committee of the QUDOS 2018 workshop.
- The call for applications for our GI-Dagstuhl seminar Visualizing Systems and Software Performance is now online. Please consider applying!
- The Seventh International Workshop on Load Testing and Benchmarking of Software Systems (LTB 2018) will be co-located with ICPE 2018. The call for papers will be opened soon!
- I will serve on the program committee of the Mining Software Repositories 2018 conference.
- Our paper Revisiting the Performance Evaluation of Automated Approaches for the Retrieval of Duplicate Issue Reports was accepted for publication in the Transactions on Software Engineering (TSE) journal!
- Our paper Analyzing a Decade of Linux System Calls was accepted for publication in the Empirical Software Engineering (EMSE) journal!
- Our GI-Dagstuhl proposal "Visualizing Systems and Software Performance (VSSP)" was accepted! More information will follow soon!
- Our paper Studying the Dialogue Between Users and Developers of Free Apps in the Google Play Store was accepted for publication in the Empirical Software Engineering (EMSE) journal!
- I was invited to write a blog post for IEEE Software Blog.
- Our paper An Empirical Study of Unspecified Dependencies in Make-Based Build Systems was selected as a journal-first paper at ESEC/FSE 2017!
- Our paper Studying the Urgent Updates of Popular Games on the Steam Platform was accepted as a journal-first paper at ICSME 2017!
- Our paper An Empirical Study of Early Access Games on the Steam Platform was accepted for publication in the Empirical Software Engineering (EMSE) journal!
- I will serve as the social media chair of the Mining Software Repositories 2018 conference.
My research focuses on helping software developers understand the consequences of their code changes on the performance their application. In general, developers are not aware of these consequences. I am trying to bridge the gap between software and performance engineering to help them become aware.
In addition, I am interested in mining software repositories, log analysis, software bugs, mobile apps and software engineering in general.
I have (had) the pleasure of co-supervising the following students:
I was born in 1984 in The Hague, in the Netherlands. I am engaged since 2015 to Nadia. In my free time, I enjoy reading, cooking and going to the gym. I am passionate about everything strengths sports-related. Over the past years I was a competitor in Strongman and Highland games.
