Long bio

Diego Damasceno is currently a Software Engineer at ASML. At ASML, he works on developing modeling and model-based testing methodologies for semiconductor manufacturing.

He is a former Postdoctoral Researcher at the Institute for Computing and Information Sciences (ICIS) of Radboud University. At Radboud University, he developed research in model-based and product-line engineering, and teaching and student supervision activities at the BSc and MSc levels.

From March to November 2020, he worked as a Student supervisor and Online tutor in the Postgraduate Program in Computing Applied to Education at the University of Sao Paulo (CAE-USP). At the CAE-USP, he supervised six postgraduate students developing term papers on Educational Data Mining, and produced educational video content for a module on Scientific Writing and Methodology.

Between 2014 and 2020, he pursued Msc and PhD degrees in Computer Science and Computational Mathematics at the University of São Paulo (ICMC-USP). During his doctoral studies, he worked under the joint supervision of Adenilso Simao and Mohammad Mousavi. He spent one year as Visiting PhD Student Researcher at the University of Leicester, performing research in the broad field of software engineering. In his PhD thesis, he investigated techniques to construct finite state machine models from evolving systems. In his MSc thesis, he performed studies in model-based test generation and prioritization for Role-Based Access Control systems.

He holds a Bachelor’s in Computer Science (2008-2014) from the Federal University of Pará (UFPa). During his undergraduate course, he had working and research experiences as a Software Engineering Intern at Siemens, and Scientific Initiation Fellow in multiple research laboratories at UFPa, including Software Engineering Laboratory (LabES), High-Performance Network Planning Laboratory (LPRAD), and Laboratory of Computational Intelligence (LINC).
