An honorable mention for the MSR 2020 Most Influential Paper Award goes to “Replicating MSR: A study of the potential replicability of papers published in the Mining Software Repositories proceedings”, by Gregorio Robles for highlighting the importance of replication in mining software repositories.
I am Associate Professor at the Universidad Rey Juan Carlos, a public university in Madrid, Spain. I mainly do research in following two fields:
a) Software engineering: I am specialized in software analytics of Free/Libre/Open Source Software systems. My primary focus is on mining software repositories, socio-technical issues such as development community metrics, software evolution, and cost estimation.
b) Computational thinking: I investigate the introduction of computer programming at an early age. I have co-authored the Dr. Scratch assessment tool.
