Mario Luca Bernardi

Mario Luca Bernardi received the Laurea degree in Computer Science Engineering from the University of Naples Federico II, Italy, in 2003 and the Ph.D. degree in Information Engineering from the University of Sannio in 2007.

Since 2003 I have worked as a researcher in the field of software engineering writing several papers published in journals and conference proceedings. My main research interests include software maintenance and testing, software reuse, software reverse engineering and reengineering, with particular interest on software modularization.
I also served both as a member of the program and organizing committees of several international conferences, and as reviewer of papers submitted to some of the main journals and magazines in the field of data mining, software engineering, software maintenance and program comprehension.

Currently I am an Assistant Professor at Giustino Fortunato University , holding the courses of "Computer Science" and "Software Systems and Services" for the Avionics Science and Technologies master degree.
