Biography

Marco Torchiano is a full professor at the Control and Computer Engineering Dept. of Politecnico di Torino, Italy; he has been post-doctoral research fellow at Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Norway. He received an MSc and a PhD in Computer Engineering from Politecnico di Torino. He is Senior Member of the IEEE, member of the software engineering committee of UNINFO (part of ISO/IEC JTC 1), faculty fellow of the Nexa Center on Internet & Society. He is author or co-author of over 150 research papers published in international journals and conferences, of the book ‘Software Development—Case studies in Java’ from Addison-Wesley, and co-editor of the book ‘Developing Services for the Wireless Internet’ from Springer. He recently was a visiting professor at Polytechnique Montréal studying software energy consumption. His current research interests are: UI testing methods, data quality, and software modeling notations. The methodological approach he adopts is that of empirical software engineering.
