"A vigorous five-mile walk will do more good for an unhappy but otherwise
healthy adult than all the medicine and psychology in the world."

Paul Dudley White, physician (1886-1973)



Multiagent Systems [conversation protocols, communication languages, social commitments]
Software Engineering [OOSE, agile development].

I am a computer scientist with research interests in multiagent systems (that is, autonomous task-oriented programs working in the same environment) and software engineering (which deals with techniques to build reliable programs in a timely and cost-effective way.) In multiagent systems, I aim at identifying rational and social concepts to build tools automating agent collaboration, from message meaning to protocol specification to team formation. In software engineering, I aim at exploring abstractions and techniques improving our understanding of software construction and testing, from programming language constructs to design patterns to automated functional testing of graphical interfaces.
